Have you seen this banner hanging on Park Street? Pictured here is a reproduction of the 1922 etching "East Side Interior" by Edward Hopper – as part of our Signs of the Times self-guided tour.

Edward Hopper was one of the leading American realist painters of the 20th Century. Known mainly for his oil paintings, perhaps his most famous – Nighthawks – depicting diner goers at an all-night coffee shop, he was also a proficient illustrator and printmaker.

"East Side Interior" shows us a glimpse into everyday life, a woman looking up from her sewing machine and gazing out the window.
