With the mural’s exhibition at MCA Denver, Abrams sees an opportunity for visitors to get an intimate look at a rarely seen piece of Haring’s work. “It’s a way to bring him back to Earth, and it’s a precious way,” Abrams says. “There have been huge, monographic exhibitions of his work that bring together thousands, if not hundreds of objects that he made in that large-scale grouping. But you don’t necessarily get into it in the same way, and I think this is going to slow us down as visitors and allow us to spend more time with each thing, and I think that’s really special.”
