About This Tour


Dive into the world of Edward Hopper's iconic painting Nighthawks on this unique virtual tour across Chicago locations.

Your journey begins with a leisurely stroll up Michigan Avenue, where you’ll uncover the history of the Art Institute and its renowned lions. You'll also pass by the Symphony Center, home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, and explore Nighthawks' cameo in the classic 1986 film Ferris Bueller's Day Off

The tour culminates with a virtual visit to a vibrant mural in Chicago's Irving Park neighborhood, a modern twist on Hopper’s work infused with local culture and movie references.
