“The Corridors Gallery at Hotel Henry, A Resource:Art Project” is scheduled to open its third series exhibition on Friday, June 8th with an Art Walk from 5:30 to 7:30 pm! The event is free and open to the public, located on Henry’s second floor. Visitors can view the collection, explore the hotel, enter for giveaways, and enjoy drinks on Henry’s newly opened (and long anticipated) North Patio. The exhibition will remain on view through the Summer and can be visited anytime – check in at the second-floor reception desk to pick up an art list. Pricing is available at the Front Desk – that’s right, you can purchase off the walls!
Hotel Henry’s museum-quality walls, vast spaces, and dedication to community collaboration align naturally with Resource:Art, a unique partnership that brings together the talents of three independent WNY gallerists: Anna Kaplan (Anna Kaplan Contemporary), Elisabeth Samuels (Indigo Art) and Emily Tucker (Jinxie Tucker, Benjaman Gallery).
Hotel Henry is excited to present pop-up contemporary art exhibits throughout the year with public openings titled “Art Walks,” speaking to the vast spaces and sprawling layout of the building. These events feature new temporary and revolving exhibits, presented ‘open house style’ as a self-guided tour. Art Walks welcome you in to explore Hotel Henry’s permanent collection along with the featured exhibits throughout the 180,000 sq.ft. hotel. As always, Hotel Henry’s Art Walks are free and open to the public.
Hotel Henry’s Art Program strives to create museum-quality exhibits, engage the cultural community as a key component of Buffalo’s cultural corridor and fill the walls of the National Historic Landmark buildings with incredible art for you to enjoy. We hope to expand to broader collaborations with New York State, Buffalo, and the Richardson Olmsted Campus, for a public art initiative for the soon to be developed spaces throughout the campus. Imagine temporary exterior exhibits that could spur collaborative efforts, through art and public engagement, for the next phases of development of the Richardson Olmsted Campus!
