hosted by Elliott Forrest

Streaming On Demand
Tickets: $50 USD

Join this very special event to raise money for Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center with world-renowned curator Carter Foster. In conversation with Peabody award winning host, Elliott Forrest, Mr. Foster will delve into Hopper's life at 3 Washington Square. Frequently walking the streets of the City, the New York experiences Hopper had have shaped some of his most celebrated paintings, including Early Sunday Morning, New York Movie, Nighthawks, and Office at Night. Using period photographs and the extensive records Hopper's drawings provide of his creative process, Mr. Foster will look at how the artist's concrete experiences of the city turned into the poetic and haunting paintings that have so captured the popular imagination and continue to fascinate us today.

A Hopper House Fundraising Event

Streaming On Demand
Tickets: $50 USD

RICHARD TUSCHMAN began experimenting with digital imaging in the early 1990's, developing a style that synthesized his background in photography, painting and assemblage. He has been exhibited widely, both in the US and internationally. Accolades and awards include Prix de la Photographie Paris (Gold Medal, People's Choice), Critical Mass Top 50, International Kontinent Awards (1st Place, Fine Art Projects) and Center Project Launch Juror's Award (chosen by Roger Watson, Fox Talbot Museum) among others. His photographs have been published in numerous online magazines/journals including Slate, LensCulture, LensScratch and Huffington Post. In 2016 he was named a New York Foundation for the Arts Fellow in Photography. Tuschman received a BFA from Michigan University and has shown his work throughout the U.S. and abroad. He lives and works in New York City.

Richard Tuschman will share his work from his series of photographs entitled Hopper Meditations, inspired by the paintings of Edward Hopper. To create these works, Tuschman builds dollhouse-sized dioramas, which he then photographs and digitally incorporates life-sized models - including himself - to create realistic scenes reminiscent of Hopper's imagery. As in many of Hopper's well-known paintings, the characters' in Tuschman's pictures are imbued with a sense of anticipation, seemingly vacillating between introspection and isolation.

Virginia Mecklenburg: Edward Hopper and the Power of Place, hosted by Elliott Forrest

Now Streaming Online

Streaming On Demand
Tickets: $50 USD

Purchase this very special program to raise money for Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center with Virginia M. Mecklenburg, Ph.D. senior curator at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington, D.C.

In the summer of 1923, Edward Hopper went to Gloucester, Massachusetts, a bustling seaport and artist colony about thirty miles up the coast from Boston. It proved to be the turning point of his life. He met his future wife Jo Nivison and began painting in watercolor -- lighthouses, elegant homes of ship captains, ramshackle dwellings of Italian immigrants, and the trawlers that plied the Atlantic. When he showed them to Frank Rehn a year later, the dealer offered the forty-one-year-old Hopper his first ever gallery exhibition. Virginia Mecklenburg will trace the now forgotten implications behind watercolors that prompted Hopper to examine the relationship between the past and contemporary life.

A Talk with Valerie Balint

Time: 5:00pm EDT
Tickets: $50 USD

Artistic Genesis: Edward Hopper House Museum and Study Center and the Sites of the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Join this very special event to raise money for Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center with Valerie Balint in conversation about how the Edward Hopper House Museum and Study Center provides a unique and rare opportunity to immerse oneself in the very birthplace of an artist's development. A visit to the museum represents a tangible touchstone to the signature light that will become a hallmark of Hopper's work throughout his career. This linkage of power of place to both artistic process and inspiration is present at many preserved artists' homes throughout the nation, which comprise the Historic Artists' Homes and Studios (HAHS) program of the National Trust for Historic Preservation.

Join Valerie Balint, senior program manager for HAHS in a discussion that places Edward Hopper, and his preserved childhood home, in the context of other preserved sites of major American visual artists. Discover the connections between Hopper, and other groundbreaking artists of their era whose homes are also open to the public. Balint's lecture will also touch upon her recently published, Guide to Historic Artists' Homes & Studios, the first guidebook featuring sites in the HAHS network. Twenty years ago, the National Trust for Historic Preservation created this program, which today includes 48 preserved artists' homes and studios throughout the country - across 22 states. In 2018, Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center was accepted into membership of this prestigious coalition.
