MISSION: The NYLO Hotel of New York City will support an Art Engagement Initiative through a three-pronged approach: programming both on and off-site and a quarterly artist residency. The residency program is meant to complement the work of the hotel’s programming director in generating fresh content for the hotel’s events series of lectures, screenings, and family workshops to encourage the public to actively participate in artist-led programming; and, lastly, develop new pathways to increase the visibility of the hotel’s collection in the hotel lobby, its hallways and surrounding facilities. Ultimately, we hope to promote programming citywide that is responsive to the personal interests of our public, and that constantly generates engaging content on par with other cultural destinations within the NY landscape. The hotel will function in a new mode: as an art space and producer of art programming, allowing the public at large to encounter art in an environment that will be inviting to novices and enthusiasts.
