For the 40th anniversary of Edward Hopper House in Nyack, NY, I reciprocated the access I was granted to the private areas of the house - basement and second floor (that houses an office and artist residencies) - by sharing the images I made there with visitors throughout the ground floor rooms.
I organized and live-streamed a public conversation in the room that formerly functioned as a kitchen, now the memorabilia room - with John Cant, Win Perry and Robert Minichiello - locals, who who were all instrumental in saving Hopper House from being turned into a parking lot 40 years ago.
Postscript: I met "the Arnolds" at the live-streaming conversation I conducted at Hopper House in 2011. I was impressed by their DIY approach to saving Edward Hopper's family home and, in 2012, I installed my flower triptych in the barn of their family farm near Davenport, NY. We discussed healthy farming versus current corporate models.
