Edward Hopper and the American Hotel

Published on August 4, 2020

Edward Hopper and the American Hotel is an exhibition that looks at the iconic midcentury artist’s fascination with places of transience, escape, and anonymity. Guests can explore the romantic and noir-ish side of hotels, motels, and tourist homes; learn about the ways 20th-century Americans participated in travel culture depending on their race, gender, and bank account; and see how Hopper’s works fit into a long tradition of using hotels to suggest emotions and ideas in art.

The exhibition runs from July 17, 2020 - October 25, 2020 at the Indianapolis Museum of Art Galleries located at Newfields, 4000 Michigan Road, Indianapolis, Indiana 46208.
