New York’s iconic artist Keith Haring is being commemorated with the unveiling of his mural, Once Upon a Time.
This mural is not in MoMA or any other museums in NY, but in one of the LGBT Center’s restrooms. Haring completed this mural only months before he died of AIDS and this area, yes the restroom now serves as a meeting place for the community.
This mural is open to the public. Going to the restroom is a typical romantic date place to go to, but it can be a change of scenery! Who said you always had to go to the museum to enjoy art?
