Conrad Art

From the moment you enter Conrad New York, modern and contemporary art is an essential part of your stay. In addition to more than 2,000 works on display in the hotel's public spaces and 463 luxuriously appointed suites, the hotel houses rotating art exhibitions in the lobby and permanent art in partnership with the Public Art Fund.

2,000 pieces of artwork by a number of post-World War II masters and contemporary artists can be viewed throughout the hotel.

Guests are welcomed into a soaring and sunlit, 15-story atrium highlighted by a dramatic blue and purple Sol LeWitt painting, Loopy Doopy, rising 13 stories high. This is the largest and most revered piece of work by the late artist. It spans 100 feet by 80 feet, and required 100 gallons of paint and 3,000 hours to complete.

Pat Steir’s expansive wall painting, entitled Topsy Turvy, is located at the top of the grand staircase and features ribbons of gem-toned paint flowing over a subtle grid on a yellow background. Other works include Imi Knoebel’s Mennige (Polygon) in the east entry of the Atrium lobby. Other artists include Mary Heilmann, Elizabeth Peyton and Sara Sosnowy.

Artists have created these one-of-a-kind artworks during their hotel stays as part of our Guest Artist Program, an ongoing partnership with Public Art Fund. Drawing inspiration from the work and ideas of legendary artist Sol LeWitt, each artist is invited to create an original, postcard-sized work of art. These small original works, created specifically for Conrad New York, would be at home on the walls of the city’s major museums and galleries. To learn more, speak with the Concierge or visit PublicArtFund.org to learn about the artists and the outdoor works they have presented in NYC.

Rotating Exhibitions

Rotating Exhibitions

The first floor lobby features rotating art exhibits by local and prominent artists.

The artwork currently on display is by Belgian-born, Brooklyn-based Artist-in-Residence, Marie-Hélène. Her collection is focused on spring and nature. 
"Life springs out of the cold winter stones and dead wood. The art here represents a range from spring water bubbles, butterflies, ladybirds, shrubbery, rose flowers and of course some spirals, found in nature."
For the works, a photograph is printed using certain types of dyes on a two-part paper (specifically a film on paper). Once the image is printed, the film with the image is separated from its supporting paper. The film is treated chemically and after a few minutes placed flat on hot water in a large tub. Then a 3D object is plunged onto the film into the water. After a minute the film becomes one with the 3D object. Marie-Hélène's Gryphon Fine Arts is pleased to present this new technique at Conrad New York.
