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

Our first-floor lobby is currently displaying works by Los Angeles-based street artist, Morley. Blending humor, hope, and his unique perspective on life, he specializes in bold, typographic posters which he wheat-pastes within the urban landscape.

Morley has featured in global galleries and publications including the Los Angeles Times and Huffington Post. He's been shown on networks such as ABC, CBS, and Comedy Central and has lectured at LACMA, The Artisphere in Washington DC, and numerous universities.

Having worked on campaigns for many national and global brands, Morley has resized some of his popular prints for Conrad New York, which are on display through the fall of 2018.
