Haring has been donated to the LA Gay & Lesbian Center by
Tyler Cassity, Co-owner of the Hollywood Forever Cemetery.
The Apocalypse series is on exhibit in the Advocate & Gochis
Galleries until March 30. It’s fitting that a series created by
Haring who established a foundation to support AIDS orgs &
children’s program has been donated to the LA Gay & Lesbian

Keith Haring’s work is so iconic we’re honored to receive and exhibit this series. It’s rare to have a complete Haring series together like this and we’re thrilled that people will have the opportunity to see all 10 silkscreens in our galleries. As Tyler Cassity stated, “I hope and believe Keith Haring would be pleased that his passionate vision has found a home at the LA Gay & Lesbian Center.”

Jon Imparato, Director of the Center’s Cultural Arts Program
