The exhibition featured over 40 trailblazers of the art world including Keith Haring, Shepard Fairey, Swoon, Space Invader, Ryan McGinness, Camille Rose Garcia, Clare Rojas, Cleon Peterson, CYRCLE, D*FACE, Dana Louise Kirkpatrick, Deedee Cheriel, Dzine, Estevan Oriol, Evan Hecox, FAILE, Gary Panter, HAZE, James Cauty, Jamie Reid, Jen Stark, Lee Quinones, Mark Mothersbaugh, Monica Canilao, POSE, Ravi Zupa, RETNA, Revok, Stanley Donwood, Winston Smith, WK Interact, and more.

The show itself has a great lineage, connecting the dots from a the past two generations of artists who have, for lack of a better term, stood on the outside of typical and traditional art career expectations. One of the major highlights of the exhibition will be that a portion of the event proceeds will be donated to Chicago Arts Partnerships In Education (CAPE), an organization which inspires students to be passionate about their education by weaving visual and performing arts into their classroom lessons. They bring academic subjects to life through art, and partner teaching artists with Chicago Public School teachers to develop original, creative lesson plans.

The Cassinelli Collection – Keith Haring

April 07 2010 . 04:20am

"Look at any photo of a person staring at a Keith Haring subway drawing and you will see the trance – the train of thought that person is experiencing. It’s taken years to finally understand the changes that came about from this generation and the significance it created in government, community, aids awareness, kids in need, etc. It was the art of taking a stand and demanding change without protesting, forcing blame or judgment on any individual that created the impetus for this change to occur." – Gary Cassinelli

The Cassinelli Collection is unique because it was assembled by someone close to Keith Haring who acquired the work directly from the artist and his circle of friends.

The collection has been in storage for nearly thirty years (since Haring’s death).
