Still stand­ing

Vocable (All English) - - Échos -

30 years ago, Keith Har­ing painted a colour­ful mu­ral on the ex­te­rior of a stair­well at the Necker hos­pi­tal in Paris. “I made this paint­ing to amuse the sick chil­dren in this hos­pi­tal,” the Amer­i­can street artist wrote in his diary in 1987. Now the tower, which had been dam­aged over the years and threat­ened with de­mo­li­tion, has been given a facelift. The mu­ral was re­vealed to the pub­lic in its newly re­stored state last month. Long live the tower!
