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.
