Artist in the Gallery: Eric Haze

Saturday, April 6, 3 pm

Free with admission

Meet artist Eric Haze in the Permanent Collection Gallery, 2nd floor to learn more about the inspiration for his paintings on view in Urban Art Evolution. Haze, born in New York City, began writing graffiti throughout the city in 1974, showing his art alongside friends Keith Haring and Jean-Michel Basquiat in the 1980s. As part of the seminal New York City collective “The Soul Artists,” Haze was one of the original pioneers to bring graffiti above ground into the mainstream and the first graffiti artist to brand his tag as a logo, creating one of the first streetwear clothing companies to rise out of the Hip-Hop era.
