This exhibition investigates how the artistic vision of Edward Hopper (1882-1967) coalesced during his youth in Nyack until he moved away in 1908, at age 26, to pursue his career in New York City. 

In this new exhibition, on view through March 26, 2023, audiences can view the artist’s childhood drawings on loan from the Whitney Museum of American Art, private collections including the Arthayer R. Sanborn Hopper Collection Trust, alongside Hopper’s school notebooks and artmaking materials and artworks by family members from the Museum’s Sanborn-Hopper Family Archive.

Together, these objects provide a glimpse into Hopper’s early years, the influence of his boyhood proximity to the busy waterfront and commercial district of his hometown, and insights into his life at home and his family’s support of his developing talent and ambitions.

Filmmaker Phil Grabsky’s new documentary “Hopper: An American Love Story” was recently released in October 2022 to coincide with the Whitney Museum of American Art’s exhibition, Edward Hopper’s New York. The already acclaimed film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush, taking a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships, and prominently features Nyack in its opening chapter.
