10:30 Punk Show
“Panic Attack! Art in the Punk Years”

This morning we all met up to see a Punk Show featuring art in the “punk years,” much of it was very graphic, but I got excited when I saw a large painting by Keith Harring, who has been a favorite artist of mine since I was a child. The piece was created in 1983 and was part of the east village scene and graffiti art. I mainly appreciate Harring for his graffiti work, but this is the first time I saw one of his original paintings in person.
