Join us for the grand opening of the exhibition, To My Friends at Horn: Keith Haring and Iowa City.

Opening on Keith Haring’s birthday, this exhibition celebrates the artist’s legacy and honors the many individuals who shaped his visits to Iowa City during the 1980s. The 1989 mural Haring painted for Ernest Horn Elementary School, which is on loan to the Stanley Museum of Art during the school’s renovation, anchors the exhibition and is accompanied by other works of art, photographs, and archival ephemera.

Program begins at noon with opening remarks, followed by refreshments, music and an art making activity for kids. Event concludes at 3 p.m.
