Symposium: Edward Hopper: Hotels, and Other Spaces

  • Virginia Museum of Fine Arts 200 North Arthur Ashe Boulevard Richmond, VA, 23220 United States (map)

A distinguished group of scholars will provide new insights into one of the most celebrated artists of the American Realist movement during this two-day symposium. Dr. Erika Doss, Professor of American Studies, University of Notre Dame, kicks off the event with a Friday night keynote, “Edward Hopper and the Meaning of Home.” Recounting his travels and his pictures of both occupied and abandoned places, this lecture considers how Hopper visually negotiated competing ideas about the meaning of home in modern times.
