The Hotel Room Art Intervention Project

For PLANNING PROCESS at the Arlington Art Center, I've tried to re-create a hotel room (and I am very grateful to the Hilton Garden Inn Rockville-Gaithersburg and to the Hilton Garden Inn Washington DC Downtown for loaning me all the various hotel peripherals used in this installation). Both of these hotels are gorgeous and their rooms look nothing like this installation, and in fact, they are decorated with real artwork from local artists.

Below you can see what my hotel room installation looks like so far...

Note that one piece of the "wall decor" has been removed from the "hotel room's walls" and is on the bed, waiting to be intervened upon...

And here it is, waiting for the magical transformation from wall decor to fine art; this transformation will be taking place throughout the exhibition, although typically I do this all in one night in a real hotel room.

“PLANNING PROCESS” as well as the concurrent exhibition “Damsels & Daemons” are on view June 22 – Sept 25, 2011. The opening reception for both shows is tomorrow, Thursday, June 23, 7 – 9 pm.

See ya there!
