When not in the mood for painting, Edward Hopper said, "I go to the movies for a week or more. I go on a regular movie binge." Whether as an escape from his work or (as most scholars argue) an influence, Hopper's penchant for cinema has forged a lasting link between his canvases and the silver screen. In conjunction with Hopper Drawing, this summer film series will mine the spectrum of period films Hopper viewed or referenced. Tonight's short films include Wallace Kelly Goes to New York (1929); To New Horizons (1940) Arteries of New York (1941) For the Living (c. 1949); and 3rd Avenue El (c. 1955).

Venue Description: Home to an impressive display of 20th century and contemporary art of the United States, with special exhibitions of paintings, sculpture, drawings, and films. Open Wed.-Sun., 11am-6pm (Fri., 1-9pm). General admission: $20; Ages 16-25: $16; Ages 65 and over: $14; Full-time students: $14; Ages 18 and under: FREE.
