Untapped Cities reader g1g1_nyc shared with us this find at New York City’s Museum of Sex: a collection of male sex toys from Tenga x Keith Haring that support safe sex. “Be Positive, Be Smart, Be Free” says the tagline on the products. The collaboration is made possible by the Keith Haring Foundation, which the artist created in 1989 to provide imagery and funding to AIDS organizations and the Keith Haring Studio, which is managed by Artestar LLC, a licensing firm specializing in the arts.
While it’s for a good cause, it just made us wonder in general about the tough decisions that must be made by foundations and licensing companies after the death of their namesake clients. Read more about where to find Keith Haring in NYC and Paris on Untapped Cities.
