Art Curation by NINE dot ARTS at Hilton Brooklyn New York, Brooklyn - Art Curation

Art Curation

Item details

George Washington, while not a New Yorker himself, stands protectively in the lobby of the Brooklyn Hilton, just as he did in six battles defending New York from the British. The hotel’s art collection pays homage to historic figures alongside contemporary people of the Big Apple. Local artist Scott Duce creates his own version of the streets of New York in his In Public series of painted vignettes which capture his view of single encounters with people in the city. Collages on fabric by Dave Seiler and intimate pastel studies by Danyl Cook pay tribute to the city’s celebration of fashion while the striking Line Lamp by contemporary New York artist Elish Warlop bring the cities’ bright lights alive within the comfort of the hotel. Ilene Curts‐Thayer makes reference to traditional aspects of hospitality in her painting, Pink Cup, featuring a Baker-Miller-esq teacup and saucer at the center of a surreal composition. The Boerum neighborhood in Brooklyn is home to a rich history for many people and this collection strives to give the hotel’s guest a glimpse of the magic hidden behind each street corner.
