November 16, 2021 4:15PM to 5:30PM
LUAG Main Gallery

Join us for a special story time and workshop with Kay Haring, sister of iconic pop artist Keith Haring. After enjoying a reading of Keith Haring: The Boy Who Just Kept Drawing, stick around to chat with Kay and get your very own copy signed by the author! We will also create our own artwork inspired by the work of Keith Haring on display in the LUAG exhibition, Thinking through Drawing: Works on Paper, Drawings & Sketchbooks from the Collection and Community.

Register in advance.

This workshop is offered in partnership with Bethlehem Area Public Library.

About the book:

This one-of-a-kind book explores the life and art of Keith Haring from his childhood through his meteoric rise to fame. It sheds light on this important artist’s great humanity, his concern for children, and his disregard for the establishment art world. Reproductions of Keith’s signature artwork appear in scenes boldly rendered by Robert Neubecker. This is a story to inspire, and a book for Keith Haring fans of all ages to treasure.

About the author:

Kay Haring is the younger sister of Keith Haring. She is a wife, mother, writer, hiker, lover of art and the wonders of nature. Kay has spent many years both working and volunteering for nonprofits, in management and fundraising capacities.  She has held board positions for a wide variety of nonprofits, many related to the arts.  She is interested in sharing nonfiction stories with children that are inspirational and thought provoking. Kay spends time in southern California, Hawaii and Utah but her heart resides in Pennsylvania.

LUAG Family Workshops offer opportunities to explore great works of art from the LUAG collection and current exhibitions through conversation, hands-on projects, and sketching. Geared to children ages 4 to 12 and their adult companions, however, all ages are welcome.
