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. Join poets Lee Ann Brown, Dan Chiasson, Hettie Jones, Vincent Katz, Philip Schultz, and Frank’s sister, Maureen O’Hara, as they commemorate his legacy by reading works chosen from O’Hara’s Selected Poems in The Abby Aldrich Rockefeller Sculpture Garden. Also hear a few of their own works. This event was held by MoMA, the Poetry Society of America, and Alfred A. Knopf.
