Creative Expression in The Caribbean

Sugar Beach, A Viceroy Resort

At the edge of the beach, in a sun-drenched part of the world, creativity thrives. Come curious. The Sugar Beach Art Collection features works by modern masters, from Andy Warhol to Jeff Koons to Banksy. Discover them in places both highly visible and delightfully hidden, and get the stories behind them on the resort’s new Audio Art Tour. While each piece is a self-contained masterpiece, they truly come into their own when experienced against the backdrop of soft white sand and lush tropical rainforest.

Shared Art Experiences

Viceroy Washington DC

Viceroy Washington DC brings people together through shared art experiences that inspire you to widen your perspective. Upon its opening, the hotel teamed up with the visionary minds of No Kings Collective to create a mural that nods to the storied Logan Circle neighborhood with elements of street design and abstract imagery. Since then, the hotel launched an intimate gallery space featuring rotating exhibits. The first exhibit is KINFOLK, featuring works by artists Charles Phillipe Jean-Pierre and Kendall Robinson that reflect on how space and time bring people together for collective experiences. Another evocative focal point at the hotel is Compass to the Cosmos, an augmented-reality-enhanced cube-shaped sculpture (also by Jean-Pierre and Robinson) that morphs via motion graphics when viewed through one’s phone to ultimately symbolize intergenerational connections and celestial energies.

An Oasis of Art on an Iconic Coast

Viceroy Santa Monica

From the façade to the courtyard to the lobby to guestrooms, Viceroy Santa Monica is a canvas of colors and fresh perspectives. See the coast through different mood-shifting lenses as you make your way around the hotel. Newly installed are in-room works from innovative artists Priscilla C. Witte and Kelcey Fisher, who encapsulate the spirit of being outdoors. Witness photographs, once lost and newly restored, taken by Karen Bystedt of Andy Warhol in the lobby; and a series of color-saturated paintings by Monica Perez in the Lounge. Three exterior murals reflect the hotel’s vibrant soul and the creative community that surrounds it. They include a midcentury modern-inspired exterior mural by Erin Miller Way, a bold homage to nature by Spencer Mar Guilburt, and a contoured and colorful abstract work by Evelyn Leigh.
