Paint BAL


20 mailboxes customised by street artists for
Keith Haring, Art and children!

The huge mural realised by K.Haring on a wall of the Necker Hospital in Paris: 27 meters high and 15 meters accross.
One on the most important pieces that Keith Haring ever made. The mural shows his investment for children and to fight against the disease. But today the mural is in a very bad state, damaged by the weather.

3 steps to this project:
- 1st step
La Poste, french post-office, partner of the project gave around 20 yellow mailboxes, that all street artists, who exhibit during the Explosition will customize with spraycans, paint, stickers… from the 15th of March to the end of August 2011 at the Musée en Herbe.
Here are a few photos of the mailboxes we saw at Musée en Herbe:

All the mailboxes will be sold by auction and the money will go to the Necker Hospital so that the mural can be restaured and the Museum for children too.

Trackbacks and Pingbacks

  • [...] Above and beyond Street Art Above and beyond Street Art or « Au delà du Street Art » is the French title for the exhibition currently taking place at the Museum of La Poste (basically, the French post-office). Located in the 14th district of Paris, La Poste owns a great exhibition space, on the ground floor of the post-office museum. So it was great to both check out this space and to discover that the post-office is more and more involved in artistic projects, and more than ever in urban art! I remember the great project: Paint BAL. [...]
