Keith Haring's journal entries go online
The Brooklyn Museum is showing Keith Haring: 1978-1982, an exhibition exploring the early career of one of the best known American artists of the 20th century. The exhibition is accompanied by a tumblr hosting online pages from Haring's journals which go back to 1971 when he was 12 years old. The site will post one new entry per day ranging across the artist's diary entries, doodles and hand-coloured memorabilia stuck on pages. You can follow the daily posts here.
