Designed by Keith Haring in 1986 for the 'Crackdown on Crack' benefit concert in Madison Square Garden, New York City, which aimed raised awareness of the city's crack-cocaine epidemic and funds for combatting it. The illustration, in  Haring's distinctive style, features his iconic jiving figures who offer up a huge "crack pipe" for a giant foot to stamp on. The concert was headlined by Crosby, Stills & Nash, Run-D.M.C. and Carlos Santana (amongst others).
