Inside Edward Hopper's Room in New York

"Room in New York" by Edward Hopper

Sheldon's spring newsletter invites you inside the most beloved painting in the museum’s collection, Edward Hopper's Room in New York. The work, which was first shown at the University of Nebraska in March 1936, was purchased with the prescient expectation that one day Hopper would be regarded as a leader among American artists.

A print version of this newsletter was sent to members of the Sheldon Art Association, the museum's dedicated support organization. For information on membership or to join, use this link.
