How appropriate for this week, as Scooter Laforge has hijacked Accidental Bear to have more art news of the same flavor. Keith Haring passed a long time ago but his legend still lives on and influences artists born even today. I Bow to you Keith.

Ten rare silkscreens from gay artist Keith Haring have been given to the Los Angeles Gay and Lesbian Center, which is placing them on display.

The art, donated by Tyler Cassity, co-owner of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, will be displayed through March 30 at the Center’s Village at Ed Gould Plaza.
