Viceroy Washington DC offers a new window into the artistry of our modern-day District. Here in the heart of Logan Circle, a neighborhood long linked with creativity and verve, you’ll be inspired at first welcome by an eye-catching mural created by one of DC’s most innovative artists. Within the hotel, a dedicated Art Gallery features rotating exhibits highlighting local artists, while a permanent augmented-reality-enhanced sculpture inspires you to reflect on the vastness of human connections. Keep your eyes open, and we’ll keep your senses piqued.

It’s all part of Viceroy’s A Canvas For Discovery initiative, which puts original, site-specific works created by innovative artists at the forefront of our hotels to welcome you and guide your journey.

KINFOLK: An Art Gallery Exhibition

The works of Charles Phillipe Jean-Pierre and Kendall Robinson entice its viewers to come together to contemplate their collective experiences. Through vibrant portraiture and abstract landscapes, the Howard University alumni transform Viceroy Washington DC into a communal space for preservation, remembrance and exchange. More than an exhibition, it’s an emotional journey promoting harmony, peace and clarity.

Compass to the Cosmos

This physical-meets-digital, artist-meets-artist installation is the first of its kind. A spirited cube sculpture created by Charles Philippe Jean-Pierre and Kendall Robinson, it features a myriad of faces and background imagery on canvas panels. Through augmented reality, as viewers observe it through their phones, the imagery morphs to reveal additional, unexpected layers. The evocative display of motion graphics is a reflection on DC itself — a place rooted in history, yet continually progressing into the future. Further, the collaboration between Jean-Pierre and Robinson symbolizes intergenerational connections and a diffusion of celestial energies between the subject and the universe.
