Anchoring AIDS Garden Chicago will be ‘Self-Portrait,’ a 30-foot tall sculpture by iconic late artist and activist Keith Haring. This sculpture will be the only one of its size in existence, and is a welcome addition to Chicago’s collection of public art in the parks.
‘Self-Portrait’ is provided through a generous gift from the Keith Haring Foundation with the support of Rosenthal Fine Art, Inc.
“There is no stronger activist than Keith Haring to help us honor the lives of those lost, and celebrate those who work tirelessly to educate and raise awareness. ‘Self-Portrait’s new home at AIDS Garden Chicago is a small but powerful way to continue talking about the epidemic as we fight to bring both HIV infections and AIDS-related deaths to zero.”
