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.
On Saturday, September 20, starting at 5 p.m., explore the world of Hopper House, the historic home in Nyack, New York, where Edward Hopper spent his formative years. Executive Director Victoria Hertz and Executive Artistic Director Carole Perry will share stories of Hopper’s life, the influence of the Hudson River on his art, and the community’s efforts to save his home and preserve his legacy. Free for members, or with Museum admission.
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. Tour the unique, historic structure built by the artist’s grandfather, now a vibrant art center, and visit other significant Nyack sites, including the riverfront where he spent much of his time, and the family cemetery plot. The cost for the trip is $65; $55 for Museum members; includes lunch. Register by September 5, by calling: 413.931.2221.
The Unknown Hopper: Edward Hopper as Illustrator is on view at Norman Rockwell Museum through October 26, 2014.
