Enter Edward Hopper’s World

Our exhibition, The Unknown Hopper: Edward Hopper as Illustrator, has been a big hit this summer, and we continue to offer a lively series of programs that explores the life and art of this realist master, and his little-known career as a commercial artist.

The following week, Saturday, September 27, come aboard for a bus trip to Edward Hopper’s boyhood home in the charming riverfront village of Nyack.
