9. Edward Hopper Art House

Edward Hopper Estate in Nyack, NY

The Edward Hopper Art House is located in Nyack and is Hopper’s birthplace. The house was constructed by Hopper’s grandfather in 1858 and Hopper lived there from his birth in 1882 until 1910. Since 1971, when the house was restored by local citizen groups, the Edward Hopper Art House has been a not-for-profit art center.

The Center’s mission is “to preserve and maintain the birthplace and boyhood home of artist Edward Hopper… to serve as a resource for scholars, art historians, and art lovers worldwide; to function as a multi-arts center for artists to display their work in all media, and to encourage and nurture community engagement with the arts.” Check out one of its many exhibitions or public programs.
