Curated and organized by Keith Haring for UNICEF. This poster is considered to be an iconic piece of the Pop era. Water, so essential to combat drought and famine prevailing in Ethiopia, was the poster's principal message and its theme, rain, is treated from different perspectives by each of the artists: graphic (Lichtenstein's oblique lines), practical (Warhol's umbrellas), ethnographic (the rain dance by Haring), political (Basquiat, combining the homophones rain and reign, and geographic (Ono, whose footsteps illustrate Africans' long walks to reach rare water sources).
