Item details

The Jupiter Hotel is a locally owned establishment loved by tourists and locals alike. They are a creative, boutique hotel in a vibrant location near downtown Portland via the Burnside Bridge. They are a cultural hub with a music venue, restaurant, event spaces, and a gallery all in the same square block. They have expanded and built a new, unique, six story hotel adjacent to the original called Jupiter NEXT which will provide many amazing views of the city. They wanted artwork that reflected the unique Portland culture their guests will enjoy, and their own connection to the community.

I worked closely with the Jupiter hotel and their interior design team to brainstorm the use of photomontage artwork with their unique design ideas; they didn’t just want the standard, small format, framed art as part of their decor. They decided to incorporate my artwork into the bed headboards, creating large format work to fill the room while showing boutique comfort. The concept mimics the amazing views of downtown Portland seen through many of the rooms and vantage points within the hotel. To accomplish this, I took my Portland scenes that reflected downtown Portland and the city’s iconic culture then adjusted them to fit the headboard format. Then I customized the scenes further by adding a Jupiter Hotel, or Jupiter Next element in every scene in a closely integrated fashion to show their connection to the city.

Capturing the Spirit of Community – Exploring the creativity, history, and culture that evolves in urban centers.

Beth Kerschen is a multi-disciplinary artist using photomontage Illustration to create cityscapes that capture the spirit of community. After graduating with a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Colorado College in Colorado Springs, she moved to Boston, MA to work for Polaroid. Then she worked for ten years as a graphic designer with several creative firms in Boston, eventually moving to Portland, Oregon in 2008. Since that time, Kerschen has committed her life to capturing vast urban landscapes into one tangible image. She uses her photography, design, and illustration skills to turn urban landscapes into fantastical images filled with meaning and nostalgia. Her art celebrates the unifying connections held by the landmarks, buildings, and vistas of our cities that unify us. She was awarded a Professional Development Grant from RACC (‘15) and a public art installation commission at the Portland International Airport (‘16). Her work has been held in a number of corporate and city collections, including two terms in the Mayor’s office (Visual Chronicle Council Collection), as several hand-painted murals for a luxury residence by ConAm, and as large format artwork in the new JupiterNEXT Hotel guest rooms.
