Frank O'Hara worked at The Museum of Modern Art on and off for fifteen years—first selling postcards, then curating exhibitions and writing catalogue copy, all the while composing poems during his lunch hour. This program will feature friends and colleagues from his MoMA heyday sharing their favorite anecdotes. Selected archival material including correspondence, handwritten notes, and installation photographs—as well as exhibition catalogues—will be on view in the Library and Archives' new Reading Rooms.
