More info from the Syracuse University website:

The University Library’s Special Collections Research Center (SCRC) current exhibition is entitled Imagine! Painters and Poets of the New York School. The exhibition is part of the Syracuse Symposium, which for 2006/2007 has chosen imagination as its theme.

On display is material from the recently processed Grace Hartigan Papers, as well as from the University Art Collection, the Grove Press Archives, and SCRC’s extensive holdings of art and literary magazines from the 1950s. Grace Hartigan (1922–) was a major participant in the explosion of creative energy that was the New York artistic and literary scene of the early 1950s. An important abstract expressionist painter, Hartigan was included in the famous show Twelve Americans at the Museum of Modern Art in 1956. Her friends and correspondents included Frank O’Hara, Larry Rivers, Barbara Guest, and Joan Mitchell.
