2022 marks the 140th birthday of Edward Hopper (1882-1967). On the November episode of Crossroads of Rockand History, we learned about the events celebrating this important American artist, who was born in Nyack, in Rockland County, NY.
Kathie Bennewitz, executive director of the Edward Hopper House Museum and Study Center, joined host Clare Sheridan to discuss the new exhibition at Hopper House, “Edward Hopper‘s Boyhood on the Hudson River and Emerging Artistic Vision,” on view now through March 26, 2023; a new documentary about Hopper, “Hopper, An American Love Story;” and the Whitney Museum’s new exhibition “Edward Hopper’s New York.”
