Children's Hospital

Keith Haring photographed by Tseng Kwong Chi painting the mural at Necker Children’s Hospital in Paris, 1987.

The mural was done with hopes to brighten the days of the sick children. Necker Hospital is known for specializing in rare genetic diseases. The hospital has been under renovation for a couple of years but Haring’s work got saved.

Fun Fact: French physician Rene Theophile Hyacinthe Laënnec invented the stethoscope while working at the hospital in 1816.

Let’s stop this nonsense. This isn’t football, there are no teams. We are the team: it’s the United States. Don’t let their partisan squabbles divide us on something every decent person wants.

[…] No parent should ever have to decide if they can afford to save their child’s life.
