The Innovative ART Hotel Opens in Denver
Imagine making your lodging arrangements inside an art gallery. Well that’s exactly what Denver’s highly anticipated luxury hotel, The ART, aims to do. And the hotel is now open for business, blending premier luxury accommodations with a multi-sensory art experience.
The ART’s in-house curator, Dianne Vanderlip, has put together a collection of over 40 pieces that boast the “who’s who” of modern art.
When guests arrive, they are greeted from the streets of downtown by a custom installation by Leo Villareal—the well-known artist behind the San Francisco Bay Bridge’s “Bay Lights.” Villareal’s piece was made of 22,000 LED light bulbs that draw attention from Broadway into the hotel’s Portico Galley.
From the gallery, guests take an elevator ride adorned with avant-garde video art by Lars Kremer to the fourth floor, where the Welcome Gallery displays large-scale masterpieces by Ed Ruscha, Deborah Butterfield and Nancy Rubins.
Deborah Butterfield's "Otter," 2014, Unique cast bronze with patina
Jim Dine's "Yellow Rushing Toward Me," 2002, Oil, acrylic, sand, and charcoal on wood panel
The ART sits in the heart of Denver’s thriving cultural scene, just steps from the Colorado History Center and Denver Art Museum. You can learn more here.
