    DescriptionWhen Frank O'Hara moved to New York City from Michigan, in 1951, he got a job working at the front desk of The Museum of Modern Art in order to be near the arts. During his lunch breaks and his noontime perambulations throughout the city. O'Hara wrote poetry, effortless, spontaneous verses, stichted together from the events and sentiments of his daily life. These writings made him one of the most important American poets of his generations. Eventually, his intimate involvement with the art world of the 1950s and 1960s led to a curatorial position at MoMA. O'Hara, now an insider in the burgeoning art scene, become close friends with Willem de Kooning, Jasper Johns, Andy Warhol and Joan Mitchell, who among twenty-seven other groundbreaking artists, contributed to these "poem-paintings"--a single work paired with a single poem to commemorate O'Hara death in 1966. For decades, the original art-literature pairings were thought to be lost. In 2004 they were rediscovered in the Museum's archives, and this new edition was planned on order to re-present a seminal documents of collaboration in the arts.
