Free Coffee on Friday, February 17, to Celebrate the Final Weeks

of Edward Hopper’s New York at the Whitney Museum of American Art

The Whitney Museum of American Art is celebrating the last chance to see the blockbuster exhibition Edward Hopper’s New York, with free coffee, espresso, and other surprise giveaways for New Yorkers on Friday, February 17. In partnership with the Espresso Guys, a Hopper coffee truck will be stopping at key locations where Hopper lived and painted throughout Manhattan beginning at 10:00 a.m. Stops include Washington Square Park, the Theater District, and the Meatpacking District. The route ends in the Meatpacking District, with the final stop near the Whitney on the corner of 14th Street and 9th Avenue from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Further details about the celebration are available online: whitney.org/events/free-coffee. The exact times and locations of the coffee truck will be revealed day-of via the Whitney’s Instagram (@whitneymuseum). You can also explore New York through Hopper’s eyes and see the sites he painted as they look today using the map.

Closing March 5, Edward Hopper’s New York is the first exhibition of its kind to focus on the artist’s rich and sustained relationship with the city that served as the subject, setting, and inspiration for so many of his most celebrated and persistently vexing pictures.

By exploring the artist’s work through the lens of New York, the exhibition offers a fresh take on this formidable figure and considers the city itself as a lead actor.
