The Keith Haring Foundation has been scanning Keith Haring's journals dating from middle school to 1989 – some of which are featured in the show of works at the Brooklyn Museum and a page will be post each day for the duration of the show through July 8, 2012. The show is the first large scale survey of the artist's early works.
