From February 8th until March 18th, the Norton Museum of Art in West Palm Beach will be celebrating the life and works of Jean-Michel Basquiat. The exhibition will feature Untitled, 1986, a classic painting, and a series of revealing sketches from private collections. Last year in May, Japanese billionaire, Yusaka Maezawa dropped a record $110.5 million on an untitled painting by the late legend who passed away at his prime at 27 from a heroin overdose. Up until this day, it is the he highest sum ever paid at auction for a work by a U.S. artist. Below are upcoming events at the Norton paying tribute to the young legend.
