In 1967, a year after the untimely death of the poet Frank O'Hara, The Museum of Modern Art published a seminal collection of illustrated poems to celebrate the life and work of O'Hara entitled In Memory Of My Feelings. Under the direction of editor-poet Bill Berkson, in consultation with art director/painter Robert Motherwell and poets John Ashbery and Kenneth Koch, thirty (30) different visual artists with close ties to O'Hara were invited to collaborate on the project. Each artist was assigned a different O'Hara poem; each asked to produce an original art work on acetate as a response to their designated poem.
Results of the collaboration were then printed as a beautiful limited edition slipcase of unbound lithographs. The Artists included in the publication, in alphabetical order, included Nell Blaine, Norman Bluhm, Joe Brainard, John Button, Giorgio Cavallon, Allan D'Arcangelo, Elaine de Kooning, Willem de Kooning, Niki de Saint Phalle, Helen Frankenthaler, Jane Freilicher, Michael Goldberg, Philip Guston, Grace Hartigan, Al Held, Jasper Johns, Matsumi Kanemitsu, Alex Katz, Lee Krasner, Alfred Leslie, Roy Lichtenstein, Marisol, Joan Mitchell, Robert Motherwell, Reuben Nakian, Barnett Newman, Claes Oldenburg, Robert Rauschenberg, Larry Rivers and Jane Wilson.
