A Canvas for Discovery
Augmented Reality Postcards

Art at Viceroy

With A Canvas for Discovery, the artist series from Viceroy Hotels & Resorts, we provide the canvas where each stroke of the brush reveals another story. To follow a trend is effortless, but to create timeless trends requires creative foresight, dedication to individuality, and devotion to exceeding creative excellence. Imagination underscores A Canvas for Discovery through original, site-specific works created by innovative artists from painters to musicians and sculptors to photographers, whose works of art welcome and guides guests on inspiring experiences at each Viceroy hotel.

Redefining the Future

Hotel Zena Washington DC

Look through a new window into the artistry of Washington DC. Hotel Zena Washington DC is part hotel and part art gallery focused on works that celebrate women. Its powerful art collection simply titled “Her” features an array of pieces created by DC artists, from a mural of late Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg to a sequined “gown” layered in 8,000 protest buttons supporting the fight for Women’s Rights. Look at each artwork as a piece of modern-day history that’s also her story and YOUR story. It’s a vibrant visual language, and everybody is invited to the conversation.

Three Artists. Three Murals.
One New Hotel.

Viceroy Santa Monica

The evocative world of the newly reimagined Viceroy Santa Monica is rooted in visual inspiration. While the shimmering pool and lush palm trees are certainly part of the picture, the hotel’s three new murals are stars of the show in their own right. It all starts with the very first sight that greets you: a bold, mid-century modern inspired mural by Erin Miller Wray called “Endless”; it graces the entire height of our eight-story façade. On the south exterior wall of the hotel, Spencer Mar Guilburt’s “Deep Roots” represents our return to nature and the earth that surrounds us. Finally, Evelyn Leigh’s “Ijeoma,” found on the outdoor patio at Sugar Palm restaurant, is a bold color play designed to evoke the calming effect of ocean waves or swaying palms. These three artworks reflect the hotel’s vibrant soul and the creative community that surrounds it.

The piece invites viewers to discover elements of the storied Logan Circle neighborhood presented through an abstract and playful perspective using fresh colors and bold patterns invoking street design and geographical markers.

Stunning Symbolism That Inspires

Viceroy Los Cabos

From a mural by MAR featuring palm trees as representations of people transcending labels for a peaceful coexistence; to a painting of a “Tee of Life” by François Paris representing new beginnings in challenging times, the artworks on view at Viceroy Los Cabos promise more than meets the eye. Go beyond the cinematic architecture of the resort to discover these visual statements that are more than photo moments — they are vibrant reminders of a culture and a landscape that begs to be discovered.
