MANHATTAN — Fans of artist Edward Hopper's scenes of New York will soon have the opportunity to see where he worked.
Hopper's studio at 1 Washington Square North, on NYU's campus, will be open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. this coming Sat., Oct. 15, as part of the ninth-annual Open House New York weekend.
The citywide event devoted to New York design and architecture includes hundreds of sites rarely open to the public, and offers performances, tours, talks and family activities.
"This is the one weekend each year when thousands of New Yorkers and tourists alike are given entrée into places and spaces, many of which are not normally open to the public,” OHNY executive director Renee Schacht said in a statement.
Hopper and his wife, Jo, lived in a fourth-floor studio apartment on Washington Square North from 1913 until Hopper's death in 1967, according to NYU. The building is now part of the Silver School of Social Work.
Visitors to the studio will be able to see Hopper's easel, desk, kitchenette and furnace, according to OHNY.
The tour of Hopper's studio is free, but only 20 people will be allowed in at a time.
Visitors to the studio can hit several other OHNY sites in Greenwich Village while they are in the neighborhood.
Participants in the currently sold-out "Ghosts of Greenwich Village Scavenger Hunt" will visit "ghost-plagued buildings and secret cemeteries." The tour will teach participants about Mark Twain, Edgar Allen Poe and other historical figures, according to OHNY.
A tour of the High Line, which is also sold out, will give visitors access to the elevated park's third section, which is not yet open to the public. Those tours run from noon to 4 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday.
At Varick and Charlton streets in Hudson Square, designers from Columbia University's graduate school of architecture will display an exhibit called Public Horizon, which explores ideas for "replacements [of] traditional public space," according to OHNY. The design proposals will be on display Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
