Generally speaking, the works we see on the walls of art museums are the finished products created by artists who each have their own distinct processes. While each piece is nicely framed and carefully constructed from what could possibly be years of struggle, rarely do we get a peek behind the curtain to see how said works are created. Which is why the DMA’s current exhibition, Hopper Drawing: A Painter’s Process, is such a special experience. Featuring more than 200 works by Edward Hopper (including drawings, watercolors, prints and paintings), this collection opens the study door, giving us a look inside some of his most well-known works. Spend the afternoon getting in-depth with one of America’s greatest artists Tuesday at the Dallas Museum of Art, 1717 North Harwood St. The exhibition runs through February 16. Tickets are $16 for adults with discounts available. Call 214-922-1803 or visit dma.org.
