Growing 1 by Keith Haring

Growing #2 is known as a “People Ladder” and represents a tower of beat box dancers in a formation.  It’s one of Haring’s most known images, alongside the radiant baby, barking dog and angels.

Keith Haring sought to democratize art and enable growth through the rights and activism he portrayed through his work. In the Growing series, the figures represented stem from the single individual. Growth represents the artist’s desire to emerge from societies withheld value system in gender, class, race, and sexuality.
