American modern artist, Edward Hopper, is well-known for his realist oil paintings depicting both rural and urban areas with objective subject matter across the United States.
One of his most famous works of art, “Western Motel,” created in 1957 is turned into a real-life 3D hotel experience at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts until February 23rd.
The exhibition allows visitors to stay overnight in the recreated room featuring the same layout, furniture design and color scheme as the “Western Motel.”
The entire exhibition, “Edward Hopper and The American Hotel,”displays more than 60 of Hopper’s paintings, drawings, watercolors and illustrations. Some of his most beloved works are “silent observations” of hotels, motels and other similar settings.
Hopper had a long lasting relationship with the VFMA, starting in 1938. The exhibition will travel to the Indianapolis Museum of Art in Newfields, Indianapolis, IN after its debut at VFMA.
