First observed on March 21, 1970 in San Francisco, Earth Day is now a globally coordinated event celebrated in more than 175 countries. This year, Earth Day occurs on Sunday, April 22nd, and UCLA Extension Visual Arts is taking the week to increase our awareness of the natural environment, and implement further sustainability efforts as part of the UCLA-wide initiative to reduce waste and save energy.
We’re also celebrating with a little help from Keith Haring! Featured above is a doodle from one of his journals, recently made available by the Keith Haring Foundation and the Brooklyn Museum. They’ve started an insightful tumblr that will be posting one journal page a day, for the duration of Haring’s exhibition at the Brooklyn Museum; Keith Haring: 1978–1982. The exhibition runs through July 8th.
