We announced this week on the site that Juxtapoz was lucky to be invited to participate in what will be a fantastic public art and exhibition in Chicago during Lollapolooza. Shepard Fairey has curated a "Art Alliance: The Provocateurs" in Chicago from July 31—August 4, 2014, featuring a fantastic roster of artists from all mediums and eras. Today, we look at one of the artists involved in Art Alliance, the late and legendary Keith Haring.

On August 12, 1988, one of the most influential and famed artists to emerge from late 20th Century American art, especially downtown NYC art, combining Neo-expressionist, graffiti, music, and poetry, died from a heroin overdose at the age of 27. Jean-Michel Basquiat, in his life and in his death, was both a symbol of the power of art and creativity, but also a symbol of the power of the art market. He continues to this day to be a favorite amongst our readers, and art collectors around the world.

We love these chairs designed by New York-based artist Keith Haring. French maker Vilac, a company that has collaborated with Haring on several other products in the past, crafts the wooden chairs.

It's hard for companies creating products for public consumption to go wrong with anything adorning the work of Keith Haring. It’s versatile, non-intrusive and easy on the eyes. Maybe we are just huge fans. Skateboards with Keith Haring graphics? Seems like a no brainer. Alien Workshops newest collection of skateboards does just that.

We finally had a chance to visit the Keith Haring exhibit at the Brooklyn Museum yesterday and were reminded for the 100th time of how prolific, and influential he was. So, we thought we would reminisce with a few photos found on the web of Keith doodling in the subways.

Opening this Friday March 16th, 2012, the Brooklyn Museum will be exhibiting a large-scale retrospective of Keith Haring's work. The exhibition begins with Haring's arrival to New York in 1978 through 1982 when he began his studio practice alongside public and political work in the streets. Some preview photos of the work and show surfaced on the web today and we are truly excited to go see this show in person!
