Art, Date Idea
Explore the area surrounding the Museum on this walk past select Gloucester houses made famous by American realist painter Edward Hopper (1882-1967). Hopper is known to have painted in Gloucester on five separate occasions in the first decades of the 20th century. His paintings from this period capture the local landscape and architecture in a loosely rendered, light filled style and are considered by many to be some of his finest works.
The Museum offers a number of different outdoor walking tours all summer long— find more here!
Guided walking tours are held rain or shine and last about 1½ hours; participants should be comfortable being on their feet for that amount of time. Cost is $10 CAM members / $20 nonmembers (includes Museum admission). Space is limited; reservations required. Call (978)283-0455 x10 or email [email protected] for details. Tickets can also be purchased online at Eventbrite.
