Royal Sonesta Hotel Boston Launches Partnership with Arts & Business Council

The Royal Sonesta Hotel Boston has partnered with The Arts & Business Council of Greater Boston to bring fresh new art by up-and-coming artists to the ArtBar. This program builds on the Hotel's legacy of deep commitment to engaging the arts community beginning in the 20th century and continuing to artists of today.

The Arts & Business Council will work with local artists to develop a quarterly exhibit that will be displayed in ArtBar. The first exhibit, Art Verdure, highlights the reawakening of spring. Just as spring reawakens the earth and brings fresh perspective after a long winter, the selected art will awaken the senses of viewers of the exhibit. The group show, curated by Lia O’Donnell, includes work by Emily Passman, Anne Johnstone, Robin Seeran, Will Alderfel, Barbara Tractenberg, Heidy Chuang, Pascale Queval, Kimberlee Alemian and Nancy Marks. The dreamy, half-abstract works announce the longer days of spring, the changing colors of the sky, the landscapes turning green.

Art Verdure launches on May 1 with a reception from 6:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. The public is invited to attend the reception and is asked to RSVP to mmalloy@sonesta.com.
