RELIGIOUS ART | NEWS OF WEEK

ALPHA OMEGA ARTS
By Disney-Britton
"Untitled" (1982) by Keith Haring
We've read that Keith Haring (1958-1990) was a "Jesus freak in his high school years," and we'd liked to have known him during those early years. We'd also liked to have known him at the other end of his life, when in 1990 he created one of our favorite religious works, "The Life of Christ," a bronze and white-gold triptych altarpiece gifted to NYC's Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine. A new show of objects created during Keith Haring's early years (1980 to 1984) just opened at Deitch art gallery, and that's why “Keith Haring: Bombs and Dogs" is our NEWS OF WEEK.
