Hotel des Arts

Date: Thursday, June 3, 2010 Time: 5:30pm – 10:00pm Location: Hotel des Arts Street: 447 Bush Street City/Town: San Francisco, CA, USA

Spring is here and the creative heat is rising at the Hotel des Arts. Join us for art gazing and friend finding at the First Thursday in June with a line-up of over 50 works of art from 5 countries. Internationally recognized as one of the leading art hotels in the world today, we pride ourselves on being creative collaborators with emerging artists everywhere. Some painted rooms are imaginative installations and others, edgy graffiti inspired works of art. And now, the public passageways feature artwork comparable to any gallery featuring emerging art in Union Square. Many of the rooms that featured newly emerging talent just a few years ago, are now recognizable names, with the next contenders lining up and hanging in the halls. The most successful and actively contributing artists, at our now monthly exhibits, will be given top priority for merchandising and room projects.

Featured artists include: Kellyann Gilson-Lyman, Connie Noyes, Warner Williams, Jeanette Luchese, Penelope Moore, Aaron Memmott, Laura Makinen, Craig Britton, Marie Kazalia, Larisa Colantonio,  Claudie Bastide, Denisse Ogata Benjamin L.M. Judith Basler, Whitney Vosburgh, Ernesto Evengelista, Bob Beardsley, Sona Mirzaei, Arthur Pusher’

The Hotel des Arts is now curated by S.C.R.E.A.M. iNC, There is space for a few more artists and creative community co-curators. Please direct inquiries to
