PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A mural by the late pop artist Keith Haring has gotten a makeover.
The colorful work titled "We The Youth" covers the side of a rowhouse in Philadelphia's Point Breeze neighborhood.
Homeowner Erica Bryant says the mural was badly discolored and cracked when she moved in last year. The city's Mural Arts Program recently worked for months to restore it.
Created with children in 1987, it features many of Haring's signature dancing figures. It's his only collaborative public mural that is still intact and at its original site.
The executive directors of the mural program and Keith Haring Foundation put the finishing touches on the artwork on Wednesday. A public dedication is planned for Saturday.
Haring died in 1990.
