Edward Hopper House RECEIVES Prestigious Award for Stewardship of Iconic Artist’s New York Home
Museum and History Center recognized for innovative youth outreach and programming
The National Trust for Historic Preservation will present the 2018 Trustees Emeritus Award for Excellence in the Stewardship of Historic Sites to the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center, in Nyack, New York. The site is one of nine award winners to be honored by the National Trust during its 2018 PastForward National Preservation Conference this week in San Francisco and a member of the National Trust’s Historic Artists Homes and Studios program.
“The Edward Hopper House is an exciting innovator in communicating how a sense of place and history is so integral to exploring an artist’s work and engaging modern, younger audiences in that exploration,” said Stephanie Meeks, president and CEO of the National Trust for Historic Preservation. “Its Nighthawks program, outreach to area K-12 students, and high school scholarship program open the world of artistic curiosity and creative expression to young people while preserving and interpreting a place so closely tied to Edward Hopper’s life and work.”
