I was last “strongly encouraged” to visit the works of Edward Hopper by my high school English teacher, when they were on display at the Phoenix Art Museum, almost 20 years ago. Now I go of my own free will, even in the era of the iPhone. The way I go is different though – going from piece to piece is like traveling between hyperlinks for me.
Of course, the real thing is nothing like the image a Web page. Even with dozens of people present, the original makes you melt.
