Critical Review

International Volunteer Day continues to this day and is an initiative by the UN that promotes volunteerism across the world and encourages governments to support and encourage volunteer efforts at local, national and international levels. As well as his poster International Volunteer Day, Haring was also chosen by the UN to design the poster International Youth Year (1985) that similarly employs his vivacious and playful style that appealed to audiences across the world.

Exclusively using bold outlines, simplified shapes and bright, flattened colours, International Volunteer Day is exemplary of the way in which Haring used a clear visual language to tackle important social issues. Creating this image for the purpose of a poster to be widely distributed and reproduced, International Volunteer Day reinforces the way in which Haring sought to dissolve the boundaries between fine art, political activism and popular culture.
