"Room in New York"

Edward Hopper’s “Room in New York,” 1932 oil on canvas 29 5/16 x 36 5/8 inches (74.4 x 93 centimeters).

For a fee, the general public can spend overnight “inside” a painting by realist Edward Hopper (1882-1967) one of America’s most famous artists, exhibited through Feb. 23 at the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond, Virginia.

So, the huge museum, a state agency, which advertises itself as “the only museum in the United States which is open 365 days a year with free general admission,” is open, so to speak, night and day during the run of the “Hopper and the American Hotel” exhibit.
