Nighthawks, Chicago Style

20 min

Visit a Chicago mural that spoofs Edward Hopper's painting 'Nighthawks'



Since 1942, Edward Hopper's Nighthawks has graced the walls of the Art Institute of Chicago. People have travelled across the world to see this depiction of a 24-hour diner with its four subjects, each seemingly lost in thought.

In 2018, Nighthawks showed up on a storefront in Chicago's Irving Park neighborhood. Well, sort of. This version — with its nods to Chicago movies and culture — emits a slightly different feel. 

On this free virtual walking tour with Chicago Movie Tours, experience Edward Hopper's Nighthawks, Chicago style.
