The Parks Department’s Citywide Monuments Conservation Program has restored Keith Haring’s 1987 “Carmine Street Swimming Pool Mural” at the Tony Dapolito Pool, at Clarkson St. and Seventh Ave. South. And it’s just in time for this week’s outdoor pool openings at city rec centers. The mural was repaired and selectively repainted. Work to clean and repair the concrete wall was done in collaboration with Parks masons, while Louise Hunnicutt and Associates, LLC, along with Jane Nelson, “in-painted” portions of the mural that required care. The project was sponsored by the Keith Haring Foundation.
