Gloucester Daily Times: Hopper-like perspectives- Teens create art for museum show
February 9, 2023
The Cape Ann Museum is working with every area eighth-grader to create original works of art inspired by Edward Hopper. The program, "A View from my Window," invites Rockport, Gloucester, Essex, and Manchester middle schoolers to share their perspectives of Hopper's work based on views from their own homes.
The student program is a prelude to "Edward Hopper & Cape Ann," the first-ever major exhibition devoted to Hopper's Gloucester years, featuring work in all media inspired by his time of Cape Ann.
"I drew the view of Rockport Harbor from my dad's apartment," said Ava Mae Mierz, a student at Rockport Middle School, during an earlier session. "I love waking up and looking out when eating my breakfast. I really enjoyed using the paint and appreciating the beautiful views."
