Board Cutout Recreation of Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks " Painting on Display in Flatiron Prow Artspace

The Whitney Museum recently unveiled their life-size board cutout recreation of Edward Hopper's "Nighthawks" painting in the Flatiron Prow Artspace, the glass-walled,  ground floor exhibit space of the Flatiron Building. The painting is one of the most famous and beloved paintings in the world, and it features three people sitting in a 1940s diner which most likely never actually existed. It is possible that the painting was inspired by the Flatiron building because of the similarity in shape. The display of the recreation in the Flatiron Building is for promoting the ongoing exhibition called "Hopper Drawing" at the Whitney Museum.
