Exhibition on Screen, Hopper: An American Love Story
December 1, 2022
Directed by Phil Grabsky
Running time: 94 minutes
Hopper’s work is the most recognizable art in America – popular, praised, and mysterious. Countless painters, photographers, filmmakers and musicians have been influenced by his art – but who was he, and how did a struggling illustrator create such a bounty of notable work?
This film takes a deep look into Hopper’s art, his life, and his relationships. From his early career as an illustrator; his wife giving up her own promising art career to be his manager; his critical and commercial acclaim; and in his own words – this film explores the enigmatic personality behind the brush.
Combined with expert interviews, diaries, and a startling visual reflection of American life, Hopper brings to life America’s arguably most influential artist.
Tickets are $12 for members and $15 for nonmembers.
Exhibition on Screen is presented in partnership with McConnell Arts Center, Gateway Film Center, and Columbus Museum of Art.
