Art Curation

Item details

Hired by Sage Hospitality to realize its company-wide mandate to use local artists in each of its properties across the nation, NINE dot ARTS curated a collection of San Diego-metro area artists to reinvent the Courtyard by Marriott San Diego Downtown. Highlights of the art collection in this landmark building, the former San Diego Savings and Trust in the Gaslamp Quarter, are two commissioned works: a colorful, contemporary portrait of the bank’s founder, J.W. Sefton, Sr., by Los Angeles artist Leia Steingart in the presidential suite and the hotel’s signature lobby piece, Onward and Upward, an eight-foot oil painting by emerging San Diego artist Sarah Stieber. The hotel’s 300-piece art collection seamlessly celebrates the city’s past, present and future.
