Edward Hopper, Part II: Jo Hopper & America's Great Art Couple' Webinar

With the Whitney Museum of American Art’s Edward Hopper exhibit in full swing until March 5, 2023, what better way to commemorate the groundbreaking exhibition than by revisiting the art that made American artist Edward Hopper a superstar in the first place? Whether it’s his distinctive eye that challenged the way he presented his contemporary world, to his resistance to the ever-changing modernity of the 20th century, his art invokes inherent anxiety and intriguing mystery like no other artist of his generation. It’s time to re-engage with Hopper’s theatrical world created in paint — one that’s still captivating and startlingly relevant all these years later.
Join New York Adventure Club for a two-part series that explores the art and life story of Edward Hopper. In Part Two , we’ll look deeply into the artworks of Edward and Josephine Nivison Hopper along with their tumultuous, but long-lasting marriage.
Led by American Art Historian Rena Tobey, our artistic deep dive will include:

Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with Rena — any and all questions about these artworks are welcomed and encouraged!
