To celebrate Keith Haring's retrospective, "The Political Line," opening at the de Young Museum in San Francisco this Fall (November 8, 2014—February 16, 2015), we are proud to close our 20th anniversary year with a cover story on one of the most influential and popular artists ever. Keith Haring is part graffiti, street art, fine art, activist, futurist, environmentalist, and came on the scene with one of the most original styles the world has ever, and will ever see.

Carlo McCormick reflects on a friend, and writes about the impact Keith has had over two decades after his untimely passing.
