Collectors Sue the Keith Haring Foundation for Not Playing Ball

Nine art collectors sued the Keith Haring’s Foundation today, alleging the foundation has cost them at least $40 million by publicly labeling about 90 paintings by the late Haring as “counterfeit” and “fake” as it refuses to fully evaluate them.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court in Manhattan. On an unrelated note (I’m sure), The Keith Haring Foundation donated $400,000 to establish Keith Haring Fellowship in Art and Activism at Bard College.

A big hat tip to Lindsay Henry for the heads up on this one.
