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.

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.

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.
