eclectic River North Art ExhibitsACME Hotel Company 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 our exhibits!
Our lobby mural was created by artist Brian Tull, of Nashville, and commissioned by Curly Tale Fine Art in Chicago. Brian likes to "manipulate paint to dictate his story, and capture an era when things seemed simple, more genuine, and honest." Brian's 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. 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! 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.
Lightwell and Stairwell Installations
Chicago master graffiti artist, AMUSE has transformed normally dreary spaces into enlightened spaces of true art and beauty and given our Bare Flying ladies a beautiful place to call home. Amuse' inspired graffiti masterpieces can be seen all over Chicago.
