It’s been eight years since the world lost actor and teen heartthrob Corey Haim, but thanks to his art, the popular idol’s legacy lives on. Best known for his roles in movies such as The Lost Boys, Lucas, and License to Drive, many people would be surprised to learn how much star power Haim still has. His IMDB star-meter (a rating system that determines the popularity of actors) is still on the rise and has never fallen below competitive levels. Now fans who want to ensure they remain connected to Corey may do so through his art and a new social media event called “Around the World”.
Greg Harrison, who is Corey Haim’s best friend, has been keeping a close eye on Haim’s art. He has shared several updates on social media and is promoting a social media campaign called “Around the World.” This consists of fans who own Corey Haim’s art to take photos showcasing the piece and then sharing it on social media with specific hashtags.
It’s a unique way to keep Haim’s legacy alive, but one that not only helps to share his art around the world but brings fans together.
Those who want to participate in “Around the World” can use the hashtag #Haimart on social media networks such as Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
Greg Harrison released a statement to the public regarding the movement.
“Haim Art Around The World” is a free art contest and an art installation for Judy Haim with love from all of Corey Haim’s fans around the world.”
He concluded the message with 2-22 Forever! CH.
The collection of photos is also an act of love and support for Corey’s mother Judy Haim who continues to love, miss and grieve for her son.
In addition to Corey Haim’s best friend Greg Harrison, one of his biggest fans who runs the Vintagely Sam blog is also speaking out about the #Haimart movement.
In a post titled “Corey’s Canvas,” Samantha Merzel revealed the different pieces from the Haim collection, explained what each piece meant to her and gave background information regarding Corey Haim’s feelings towards the work.
Some of Haim’s art includes “California,” “Lonely Day,” “The Message,” “Tea Pot,” “For Mom,” and “Whirlpool.”
