Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown, NY

Cooperstown, New York — Fenimore Art Museum in Cooperstown has extended its exhibition, Keith Haring: Radiant Vision, until October 11, 2021. This five-week extension allows for additional visitors to experience the popular show through Upstate New York’s fall travel season. Museum admission is free for visitors ages 19 and under. Free admission is made possible through a generous donation by Mr. Gary Cassinelli and Mr. Nick Preston.

Examine different aspects of Haring’s life and career including his subway drawings and street art, gallery shows, the Pop Shop, and his commercial work. Featuring more than 100 works from a private collection, the exhibition includes lithographs, silkscreens, drawings on paper, and posters, and details the full arc of Haring's short but prolific career. 


Visitors will instantly recognize seminal images like “Radiant Baby”—images that permeated American culture in the 1980s and became emblematic of the time. The images are powerful examples of how Haring fought for change using art as a platform for activism. In its entirety, the exhibition serves as a tribute to this iconic artist and his dedication to social justice and the betterment of youth worldwide. For more information, visit


This project is supported by a Market New York grant awarded to Fenimore Art Museum from I LOVE NY/New York State’s Division of Tourism as part of the Regional Economic Development Council initiative.


The exhibition is sponsored in part by Mr. Gary Cassinelli & Mr. Nick Preston, The Clark Foundation, Nellie & Robert Gipson, Hughson & Benson Associates Insurance, Joe & Carol Mahon, NYCM Insurance, Mr. & Mrs. Thomas O. Putnam, and The Tom Morgan & Erna J. McReynolds Charitable Foundation. Keith Haring: Radiant Vision is traveled by Pan Art Connections, Inc.

The collection will delight young visitors with an inside look at Marc's artwork and stories. Also on view is Toying with the World: Works by Laurene Krasny Brown (August 7–December 31, 2021).
