HELP PRESERVE EDWARD HOPPER'S LEGACY FROM ITS BEGINNING
Edward Hopper's ARt has Graced The White House, and the permanent collections of the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Met, the Art Institute of Chicago, and museums around the world. Edward Hopper's world is also on view at the Edward Hopper House Museum & StuDy Center.
While we prepare next year’s inspiring exhibitions with a variety of contemporary artists and their relationship to Edward Hopper, the time has come to reach out to our patrons to encourage their continued support.
TONY OURSLER’s words on Hopper provide a taste of what’s to come this spring:
It is with a kind of kinship that I reflect upon my connection to Edward Hopper. As a boy growing up along the banks of the Hudson River not far from the Hopper family home, I didn’t fully appreciate the magnitude of Edward Hopper’s legacy. Only later, as I developed my own artistic identity, did I come to appreciate how the distinct qualities of light, architecture, and the riverfront living of Nyack impacted his vision, and mine.
In March 2020, I will be participating along with four other artists in the exhibition Object Lessons at Edward Hopper House. We will each present childhood objects that have emotional resonance together with more recent work to illustrate the link between youthful influence and mature artistic expression. I hope you will come to explore this exhibition, and also support the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center in its mission to bring such thought-provoking and carefully curated exhibition projects to the public.
Through our exhibitions and collections, we create programs to bring Edward Hopper to classrooms, community centers, and service organizations with interdisciplinary programs throughout the lower Hudson Valley. The successful “Nighthawks” youth leadership program provides 26 teens with an unparalleled opportunity to be trained weekly within the setting where Hopper was inspired to create his earliest works. This program enriches the quality of life and sense of place within our community.
We are counting on your donation so that we can continue to provide you, our members, visitors and students with important exhibitions reaching audiences throughout the region, and beyond. Your donation is and deeply appreciated.
