PARK IT… and savor the eye candy

July 16th, 2008

A hotel lobby or an art gallery? Park Hyatt hotels seem to lead a double life. At Palacio Duhau-Park Hyatt Buenos Aires, the corridors are lined with commissioned sculptures and paintings, and an underground walkway dubbed Paseo de las Arte (pictured at right) showcases international and local artists in a rotating exhibit that changes every 60-90 days. Other masterpieces around the world…

* The lobby of Park Hyatt Chicago holds Gerhard Richter’s 1968 masterpiece “Piazza del Duomo.”
* Park Hyatt Zurich is home to a selection of 91 major art pieces that are featured throughout the hotel – even the restrooms and elevators have impressive pieces. In the lobby are works by Sol LeWitt, Gregor Frehner, Katharina Henkin, and Heinz Mack.
* The hot dining and drinking spots at Park Hyatt Paris-Vendôme are famously decorated. Pur’Grill has nine drawings by Viswanadhan, and Le Bar has six Ed Paschke’s.
* Park Hyatt Milan‘s top two pieces are a canvas, “Untitled’ by Tancredi Parmeggian (introduced to the Presidential Suite in 2007), and a sculpture, “Testa di Medusa” by Lucio Fontana, on display in the lobby.
* “Gutsy,” an enormous handmade mask crafted by Japanese artist Mieko Yuki, greets guests in the lobby of Park Hyatt Tokyo. Her artwork is also on display in the Tokyo Suite that opened in 2007.
* Paintings by famous Azeri artists and handmade carpets add to the cozy feel in the presidential suite at Park Hyatt Baku.
