Keith Haring’s Eclectic Journal Entries Go Online

Tomorrow marks the opening of Keith Haring: 1978–1982, the first “large-scale exhibition to explore the early career of one of the best-known American artists of the twentieth century.” The exhibition, appearing at The Brooklyn Museum until July 8, traces the development of Haring’s visual vocabulary by showcasing “155 works on paper, numerous experimental videos, and over 150 archival objects, including rarely seen sketchbooks, journals, exhibition flyers, posters, subway drawings, and documentary photographs.” And, of course, the exhibition is accompanied by a Tumblr that will host online pages taken from Haring’s personal journals. The Tumblr will post one new entry per day (like the one above), throughout the duration of the exhibition. You can keep tabs on the entries right here. H/T Metafilter
