Where form meets function

Currently on display at SoHo’s legendary Deitch Projects is Keith Haring’s 70-foot-long mural painted in 1985 for the South of Market Childcare Center (SOMACC) in San Francisco.

“The mural is one of 16 public works painted at hospitals and children’s centers around the world during the artist’s lifetime. Painted in one day, the mural incorporates cartoon characters and animals inspired by the artist’s childhood drawings. When SOMACC lost its lease and moved to a new location in September 2006, the mural was dismantled and is now on view for the first time outside of San Francisco.”

On display at Deitch until February 16th, 2010.
