Chicago Art Exhibit

ACME Hotel is all about being creative, innovative, and embracing self-expression. When we say DO YOUR THING, we meant it - that's why our local art initiatives are so important. At the ACME, guests can enjoy this self expression in two specific exhibits!

Lobby Mural -

Our lobby mural was created by artist Brian Tull, of Nashville, TN., and commissioned by Curly Tale Fine Art in Chicago. His retro style is an ideal fit for ACME. Brian likes to "manipulate paint to dictate his story, and capture an era when things seemed simple, more genuine, and honest". Brian's eclectic works, which are commissioned from across the country, are designed to arouse a memory or feeling within the viewer. We think it's cool that Brian's self expression is one of the first things our guests experience at ACME.
Side note . . . Brian recently utilized our very own Berkshire Room to serve as a background for a commissioned piece - we can't wait to share it upon its completion! briantull.com

The Bare Painted Ladies -

When guests look out their window, they're likely to get an eyeful of WOW with our Bare Painted Ladies installation - the ladies provide guests a creative juxtaposition between raw urban industrial space and colorful art. ACME commissioned local artists to adorn mannequins using nothing more than paint, and their vivid imaginations. The 10 mannequins were then suspended in our light wells and offer our guests a one-of-a-kind, artful eyeful.
