International Volunteer Day from 1988 is a limited edition of 1000 lithograph by Keith Haring. This print was created to celebrate the establishment of International Volunteer Day as proclaimed by the United Nations to be celebrated annually on December 5th. The print was originally published by the World Federation of United Nations Associations in New York and shows an abstract image of two heads with two large arms in a symmetrical, brightly coloured composition.
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.
