Keith Haring at the Palladium

Keith Haring was one of the most talented and creative artists of the late 70s and 80s in New York City. His graffiti and pop art masterpieces graced gallery walls, the streets of New York, clothes, and even popular night spots such as the Palladium.

Years after the closing and sale of the legendary Studio 54, Steve Rubell and Ian Schrager decided to try it again by opening the Palladium in 1985. Like its predecessor, the Palladium's decor was visually striking.

Keith Haring was comissioned to create a mural that would serve as backdrop for the dancefloor. Below some photos that show Haring posing on the Palladium with his creation, and the mural in full.
