Russell Ferguson curated the exhibit "In Memory of My Feelings: Frank O'Hara and American Art," (there's also a companion book). Frank O'Hara was part of a small group of poets in New York City in the 1950s and 60s, influenced by the Abstract Expressionist painters of that time, including Jackson Pollock and Willem de Kooning. O'Hara died in 1966 after being struck by a jeep.
