Weekly Rec: Hopper House Exhibit and First Street Fair of the Season

Go back in time at the Edward Hopper House Museum & Study Center with Kibbitz & Nosh: New York City’s Vanishing Cafeterias, an exhibition of over 25 photographs by Marcia Bricker Halperin. Opening reception: Saturday, April 15, 5-7:00pm

Halperin documents the waning years of New York City’s self-service dining establishments. Among the locations she photographs between 1975 and 1985 are Horn & Hardart automats and Dubrow’s, a popular family-owned chain of cafeteria-style restaurants in Manhattan and Brooklyn that closed its doors in 1985.

 Halperin’s black-and-white photographs recall some of Edward Hopper’s most iconic oil paintings, such as Automat (1927, Des Moines Art Center), Chop Suey (1929, private collection), Sunlight in the Cafeteria (1952, Yale University Art Gallery), and, of course, Nighthawks (1842, Art Institute of Chicago). Both artists capture figures at popular eateries in isolated contemplation or private social interaction.


The reception is free open to Museum Members, guests, and the public by reservation. Free. Click here for more information and to reserve a spot.
