New York City has some of the most elegant and also the most avant- garde hotels in the world. These hotels cater to the thousands of visitors who come to the city from other parts of the nation of course the world over. The hotels need to make sure that they are different from the rest of the hotels in the city in order to attract a clientele that keeps coming back. Now, the hotels in New York have begun to seek art‘s help, and have begun to create a niche for themselves by installing art works, exhibiting contemporary New York artists works, and even creating a sort of art market within the hotel.
The Hotel as Art Gallery is a cool book in which Diane Cardwell for The New York Times has assessed the way in which hotels have begun to encourage buying, selling and even appreciating art within their premises. Abstract in NYC is a package that is being offered by the famous Pod Hotel. Guests would get two complementary tickets to MoMa which could range between $99 and $159. The idea is to encourage the guests to visit Looking at Music 3.0, which is The Museum of Modern Art’s exhibition.
