Hudson Yards will host a rare four-day display of Keith Haring’s “CityKids Speak on Liberty” banner on Manhattan’s West Side from Thursday, November 2 through Sunday, November 5.
All New Yorkers will get an opportunity to publicly view the iconic banner before it is sold privately by Phillips to support the ongoing mission of The CityKids Foundation.
The banner will be hung on the east-facing façade of 15 Hudson Yards – the site’s first residential development to be placed on the market – so New Yorkers can easily view the banner from the High Line.
In 1986, Manhattan-based Haring created the 90 ft. 30 ft. banner in conjunction with The CityKids Foundation to commemorate the centennial anniversary of the Statue of Liberty’s arrival in the United States.
The banner was named “CityKids Speak on Liberty” in recognition of the 1,000 New York kids who included their thoughts on liberty within the artist’s intricate blacke outline of the Statue of Liberty
