This weekend, Art Series Hotels is set to launches ‘Art in Micro’ an exhibition of micro art – the next big thing in the art world, via Thinkerbell.
Starting this week on check-in guests will be handed a magnifying glass, along with a catalogue of the tiny artwork and prompted to find every micro art piece – some of which may prove to be all too tricky to see with just the naked eye. Guests who can find the art, and promote the exhibition so others can find it too will be given the opportunity to win a trip for two to Le Louvre, Paris during their stay.
Says Ryan Tuckerman, marketing director, Art Series Hotels: “We have a rich history of supporting and exploring contemporary art forms, and believe micro art will be of particular fascination this exhibition season. Across the 8 of our Art Series Hotels, over 40 pieces of micro art have either been purchased directly from artists around the world, or have been loaned. We’re inviting guests to stay the night and find the art.”
The exhibition features artwork such as; sculpted pencil leads by Salavat Fidai, the ceramic miniatures of Jon Almeda, micro dioramas of urban decay from Joshua Smith and micro watercolour on canvas by Varvara Razakova.
Says Jim Ingram, chief creative tinker, Thinkerbell: “It’s amazing how something so small can have such an impact, everyone on the project has been in absolute awe of the level of detail these artists go to with their craft.”
Art in Micro is being exhibited at all 8 Arts Series Hotels from now until 31st July 2019.
