Motivational Mondays: Keith Haring

The public needs art, and it is the responsibility of a “self-proclaimed artist” to realize the public needs art, and not to make bourgeois art for a few and ignore the masses…. If the public is afraid of art, should we [artists] be afraid of what we have done to make the public afraid of art?

– Keith Haring, journal entry, October 14, 1976

I featured Keith Haring this week because I was inspired by his show in the Brooklyn Museum. This quote made me think of how we, as creative people, can reach and inspire others with our talents.
