About

After Analú Maria López’s initial discovery of the 35 mm scan of Keith Haring, the MCA’s library staff dug through old boxes of ephemera to see how deep the MCA’s involvement was in this project. Their findings—an ad in the Reader, a party invitation, a T-shirt, and an MCA magazine listing for a talk highlighting the project—proved how extensive the museum’s involvement in this public art project really was.
