Edward Hopper’s nighthawks recreated as 3D pop-up installation

A life-size, 3-dimensional recreation of Edward Hopper’s ‘nighthawks’ has been installed in the NYC landmark flatiron building’s prow. The pop-up, cut-out style model is created by the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in celebration of their current exhibit, Hopper drawing — a show devoted to the painter’s process which includes some 200 previously unexhibited drawings on paper. The four protagonists from the iconic 1940s diner scene were scaled up to mimic human proportions and their arrangement around the wooden bar perfectly replicates Hopper’s original. The distinct architectural elements of the flatiron building — in particular its reflection of the triangular site — was an initial influence for the locale pictured in ‘nighthawks’.
