In April of 1983 while the Haggerty Museum was under construction, Keith Haring, then a young artist living in New York, was invited to the Marquette University Campus in Milwaukee to create a mural on the construction site where the building for the new museum was to be built. The aim of the Keith Haring Mural Project was to publicly announce with a site specific original work of art the creation of a new museum of art in the Milwaukee community. The fresh and energetic images of Keith Haring brought a life to the site of the new museum that more conventional efforts would not have been able to achieve. – Curtis L. Carter (founding Director)
