Art envelopes The Old No. 77 Hotel. It spiffs up the walls of each guest room as well as the rotating collections in the dedicated gallery highlighting our partnerships with local creative communities.
United by a shared passion for New Orleans art, we found kindred spirits in the Where Y’Art team. They’re a group of curators that showcase the works of New Orleans artists, painters, sculptors, craftsmen and jewelry designers in their online gallery and within their brick-and-mortar space on Royal Street, in the Marigny neighborhood. At The Old No. 77, Where Y’Art offers their creative perspective by continuously curating the gallery so guests experience an extension of their interactive exhibitions without leaving the hotel.
Plus, each summer our Artist in Residence program invites out-of-town artists for a month-long residency program with plenty of space to dream and create. At the close of the program, a special exhibition is open to guests and the public to view the art developed during the residency. Past artists have included Indianapolis-based multi-disciplinary artist Chase Cannon; Chicago-based creator, Kate Lewis, who captured New Orleans magic through large scale black and white illustrations; and Thomas ‘TJ’ Kiser, who debuted as the first Artist in Residence in 2016.
