Trip: Cape Ann Museum to see the exhibit: Edward Hopper & Cape Ann: Illuminating an American Landscape

July 26 @ 10:00 am

The bus departs at 10:00 am for a trip to the Cape Ann Museum to see the exhibit: Edward Hopper & Cape Ann: Illuminating an American Landscape. Opening on July 22, Hopper’s birthday, exactly 100 years after his pivotal trip to Gloucester (then celebrating its 300th anniversary), this once-in-a-generation exhibition offers a fresh look at one of America’s best-known artists at the crucial moment that profoundly shaped his art and his life. It shows the largely ignored but significant origin story of Hopper’s years in and around Gloucester, Massachusetts—a period and place that imbued Hopper’s paintings with a clarity and purpose that had eluded his earlier work. The success of Hopper’s Gloucester watercolors transformed his work in all media and set the stage for his monumental career. Approximate return: 1:00 pm. Fee: $38 for transportation and admission.
