Frank Stella and Arppie

Yesterday, as Marash Girl listed a "coffee table book" for sale (FRANK STELLA, a volume published in 1970 by the Museum of Modern Art) she remembered Arppie.   Yes, it's the new year and Marash Girl continues to remember with love the wonderful people who have been a part of her life.  Arppie, Marash Boy's sister, (someone who, by the way, visited Marash in 1962 or thereabouts, not with a group but on her own), was not only the International President of the Armenian Relief Society, but she was the Director of the Jorgensen Auditorium at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, Connecticut; as such, she always invited her friends and relatives to University concerts and art openings.  It was during one of these events that Marash Girl became aware of Frank Stella's work.  And she has been a fan of Frank Stella ever since.  [And it's important to note here that Marash Girl has always been a fan of (God rest her soul) Arppie!]

Pages from William Rubin's work on Frank Stella published by MOMA in 1970.
