Description

The Edward Hopper House Art Center is a dynamic multi-arts center situated in the birthplace and childhood home of renowned American realist painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967). The Art Center presents art exhibitions featuring the work of emerging and established artists and juried theme shows in all styles and media. There are also programs and events for children and adults throughout the year, including an outdoor summer jazz concert series, Artists in the Park event, a December book fair, a monthly poetry workshop, drawing, painting, and photography classes, and much more.

This historic house, which is listed on the National Register of Historic Places, was an important influence on Hopper’s art throughout his life – views from his childhood, the play of light in various rooms, and nearby post-Victorian architecture were distilled into his art, creating the powerful moods in his paintings.

Mission

The purpose of the Edward Hopper Landmark Preservation Foundation is to restore and maintain the birthplace and boyhood home of Edward Hopper (1882-1967), renowned American realist painter whose works appear in museums throughout the world; to serve as a community cultural center with gallery space for artists to display their works in all media; to provide a location for drawing sessions, lectures and dramatic and musical presentations; to preserve Hopper family memorabilia; and to accumulate Hopper archival materials.
