NEW YORK (AP) — Sotheby's is holding an exhibition in New York of 32 artworks by the late pop artist Keith Haring. Most of the art is available for private sale.

The show opened Friday at the auction house's headquarters. It runs through April 23.

The works come from various collections, and include sculptures, canvases, tarps and works on paper.

Prices range from $25,000 to $1.5 million.

Only three of the works are not for sale. They include a crib covered in his iconic imagery that he dedicated to his first love.

The Brooklyn Museum currently has an exhibition that focuses on Haring's early career.

Haring died of AIDS in 1990 at the age of 31.
