Albuquerque, New Mexico (PRWEB) April 03, 2013
Nativo Lodge, a Heritage Hotels and Resorts, Inc. hotel, has commissioned four Native American contemporary artists to transform guestrooms into works of art. This bold artist room project is the first of its kind in New Mexico. These new artist rooms offer our guests a very unique experience unlike anything else in New Mexico, said Heritage Hotels and Resorts, Inc. CEO, Jim Long. Most people experience art in galleries or museum settings. The opportunity for our hotel guests to sleep in a guest room that is an art piece in itself, promises to be one of the most exciting and stimulating experiences anywhere. These artist guest rooms, designed by Native American artists, are deeply rooted in cultural traditions but express themselves in surprising ways. They take the hotel guest room experience to another level.
Acclaimed SWAIA Native American contemporary artists Heidi Brandow, Nani Chacon, Rhett Lynch and Ehren Kee Natay will kick off the Artist Room project. These New Mexico artists have received local and national attention including accolades from the world-renowned SWAIA Santa Fe Indian Market. Nativo Lodge partnered with SWAIA (Southwestern Association for Indian Arts) to select these featured artists through a juried submission process.
