An event every week that begins at 12:00pm on Sunday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday, repeating until February 25, 2018
Edward Hopper House is pleased to present Carrie Mae Weems: Beacon, an exhibition honoring the 2017 Edward Hopper Citation of Merit in the Visual Arts recipient. For this series of photographs, Carrie Mae Weems documented the changing landscape of Beacon, NY, over the course of her year as artist-in-residence there in 2002. Weems places herself as the subject in the Beacon photographs, always pictured with her back to the camera, observing and “bearing witness, confronting something, [serving] as a guide to the viewer standing with me.”
Support for this exhibition has been generously provided by Regina Rodwell-Bell and Jake Bell. The Edward Hopper House thanks O’D’s Tavern in Nyack for being our Exhibitions Sponsor for 2017.
Gallery hours are Wednesday – Sunday from 12:00 pm – 5:00 pm or by appointment.
