THE ARTIST'S STUDY CENTER The Power of Objects for the Study of Edward Hopper's Legacy
Richard Rabinowitz, historian, exhibition developer, and author of the just-published Curating America: Journeys through Storyscapes of the American Past, will join the Edward Hopper House’s Executive Director, Jennifer Patton, in a conversation exploring the power of objects to tell stories, especially about an important artist like Edward Hopper.
Rabinowitz brings a half-century of experience in public history and museum learning, developing over 500 projects in 34 states, to the challenge of making creative use of the Hopper collection at the Edward Hopper House.

HOPPER & EUROPE
Edward Hopper is renowned for paintings of American towns and landscapes, but his trips to Europe were crucial to this achievement. Visiting Paris as a young man, he studied Impressionist works by Monet, Degas and others, and would often recall them in his own paintings.
Guest lecturer Richard Kendall is an art history scholar and independent curator specializing in Degas and 19th century artists. Mr. Kendall is a former curator for the Sterling and Francine Clark Art Institute, Williamstown, MA.
Art Talks are held in the Community Meeting Room at The Nyack Library: 59 S. Broadway, Nyack NY
