Learn how Edward Hopper used shadow and light to set the scene in his drawings, from the luminous morning sky to the dark shadows of night! Visit Hopper Drawing and American Legends: From Calder to O’Keeffe to compare how different artists use light and dark in their art works.
Over the summer, Whitney Wees will start a wee bit earlier, at 10 am. This will enable families to explore Hopper Drawing and other exhibitions before the Museum opens to the public!
