The Missing Piece
Haring Mural Door

The piece, a 65cm x 69cm wooden door, which features the signature of the late artist as well as his iconic ‘crawling baby’ motif, went missing from the site soon after it was painted in 1984.
In 2013 the door was anonymously handed in at Arts Victoria – which had been leading a project to restore the heritage-listed mural.
Through consultation with local stakeholders an Arts Victoria project officer learned of someone who had further information about the disappearance of the door. She made contact with the person via email in October 2012 and in February 2013 it was delivered anonymously to Arts Victoria reception wrapped in black plastic.
