Edward Hoppers 'Nighthawks' Recreated 3D Installation in the Flatiron Building NYC

Famed work of art 'Nighthawks' by Edward Hopper is now recreated in a 3D, life-size installation in the NYC landmark Flatiron building's prow. 

The pop-up, cut-out style model is created by the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York in celebration of their current exhibit 'Hopper Drawing', a show devoted to the painter's process, which includes some 2oo previously unexhibited drawings on paper.

The distinct architectural elements of the Flatiron building, specifically the triangular site was an influence for the locale pictured in 'Nighthawks'.
