Professor Fryd Gives Lecture at Edward Hopper Symposium

This November, our faculty member Vivien Fryd spoke at the Edward Hopper Symposium: Hotels and Other Spaces at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts .

This symposium featured guest scholars who provided insight on the artist Edward Hopper and the American Realist Movement. Hopper is well known for his depiction of home settings, which was inspired by his travels through the United States and Mexico with his wife. The lecturers focused on how Hopper visually communicates the modern meaning of “home” in his works.

Professor Fryd’s lecture was titled Hotels as "Camouflaged Brothels" for Illicit Affairs.
