Join us to celebrate the opening of In Conversation at UB Anderson Gallery! Take in the exhibition with light refreshments, and at 7 pm join us for a lecture and conversation with Ada Calhoun, the New York Times-bestselling author of Also a Poet: Frank O’Hara, My Father, and Me. Calhoun’s book traces her relationship with her father and their shared obsession with poet Frank O’Hara, whose work also inspired several pieces in the exhibition.
