(AP) A rare mural by the late pop artist Keith Haring has gotten a makeover.

The colorful work titled "We The Youth" covers the side of a rowhouse in Philadelphia's Point Breeze neighborhood. Created in 1987, it features many of Haring's signature dancing figures.

The city's Mural Arts Program has worked for months to restore the piece. Officials say it's the only collaborative public mural by Haring that's still intact and at its original site.

Artists plan to put the finishing touches on the wall at a news conference Wednesday. A public dedication is planned for Saturday.

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