Keith Haring would have been 60 years old today had he not succumbed to AIDS related complications in 1990. He established the Keith Haring Foundation in 1989 so that he could continue to help the fight against AIDS even after his death. The Keith Haring Foundation is proud to be partnering with the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation in their effort to see an AIDS-free generation by 2020.

This photo shows party-goers at the second annual Party of Life, hosted by Keith Haring in May of 1985 at the newly re-opened Palladium nightclub on East 14th Street in New York City. 5,000 people were sent puzzles in a box as an invite to the party, the box also contained buttons that attendees had to wear in order to gain entrance. Today, May 4th, would’ve been his 58th birthday.
