Keith Haring characters sprout on shopping streetBusiness | 13 Mar 2018 8:18 pm
New York luxury brand Coach is hosting an art walk at Lee Tung Avenue in Wan Chai from March 20 to April 8, featuring illustrations seen in the spring 2018 collection.
American artist Haring (1958-1990) had a democratic and accessible approach to art an ethos of inclusivity. This season, Coach’s iconic leathers are a natural canvas for Haring’s bold graphics. To honor the collaboration, Lee Tung Avenue has been transformed into an interactive art-walk experience, laden with Coach’s energy and infused with Haring’s downtown New York City vibe.
Open to the public, it features fun digital and interactive elements for all. Highlights include: a Coach spring 2018 exhibition glasshouse, with a station for signature Haring-character temporary tattoos (in the main center section of Lee Tung Avenue); and digital interactive activities (at both Queen’s Road East and Johnston Road entrances). The entire area will be decorated with Haring’s graffiti-style art-work displays.
Those visiting the Coach and Keith Haring art-walk at Lee Tung Avenue should collect a stamp at each of the three stations. All completed original cards can then be taken to the Coach store at ifc mall (Central) or Times Square (Causeway Bay), where they can collect a complimentary gift.
