Keith Haring began his art career at my subway stop on 96th Street and Lexington Avenue number 6 train.
I remember the first baby drawing on black unused ad space. A few stations away another. I knew something was happening. BUT WHAT??
Weeks passed more babies with more levels of complexity. More creatures too. I kept watching a growing art phenomenon in the subway. This was late ’70s early ’80s. I feel so lucky to have been witness to the emergence of an artist who was really exploring the canvases of the city. History before my eyes.
