Hotels Are Becoming Fine Art Spaces — But Where Do They Buy Their Art?

Queen Elizabeth sits serenely with eyes closed in a giant photograph — perhaps meant to lull viewers to sleep. Her portrait is not on display in a museum, rather, she hangs in the lobby of London’s Churchill Hyatt Regency, part of a growing trend of hotels that are using artwork to create a unique and memorable experience for their guests. But where do hotels buy their art?

Whether a Hilton, Hyatt or Marriott, these franchises must all meet branding specifications set by a parent company. Art selection, on the other hand, is usually determined by an architect or interior design team hired by the hotel owner. There are also Boutique Hospitality Art Consultants who negotiate with working artists to create custom art packages for hotels.

Art consultancies will often locate artwork from local artists through area art galleries for global placement in luxury hotels around the world. One way for local art galleries to stay informed is to partner with the American Society of Interior Designers Association. This partnership helps galleries get an inside track on current and upcoming interior design projects.

Sometimes these design projects require high-volume and quick turnaround and that’s where digital print technology comes in. Galleries and designers look for quality substrates such as Fredrix Canvas to reproduce museum quality work for their guestroom art pieces. Artists know they can trust their work to Fredrix because of their 150-year-old legacy of making fine canvas products in the U.S.
