A first-ever chance to stay overnight at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts goes on sale today.
As part of the exhibition, Edward Hopper and the American Hotel, opening Oct. 26, the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts will recreate Western Motel—one of Edward Hopper’s best-known paintings—as a three-dimensional motel space. The “Hopper Hotel Experience” affords visitors the opportunity to book a night in this room-size replica of Western Motel.
The room is located near the painting that inspired its creation, along with other works by one of America’s most celebrated artists. Some of the “Hopper Hotel Experience” packages include dinner at VMFA’s fine dining restaurant, Amuse; a guided tour led by the curator; an exhibition catalog; and miniature golf at the newly opened Hotel Greene among other features. This is the first time that VMFA has recreated a work of art as a three-dimensional space and made it available to stay in overnight.
Tickets will be on sale starting today, September 11th, at 10:00 AM. Visit vmfa.museum/hopper-hotel-experience for additional details and reservations.
