This past December, the HALL Arts Hotel opened in Dallas. Located in the largest contiguous arts district in the country, the hotel features 183 rooms, 19 suites, a rooftop pool, restaurant and lounge, and a state-of-the-art fitness center.
With a passion for the arts woven into the very DNA of the property, the hotel boasts a diverse collection of impactful, thought-provoking works of art that celebrate established and emerging talents. The property collaborated with the former chief curator of the U.S. Department of State’s Art in Embassies Program, Virginia Shore, and longtime art advocate and HALL Group curator Patricia Meadows, to curate a collection of specially commissioned pieces.
Highlights in the collection include a piece at the hotel entrance by Alison Watt, a contemporary Scottish painter known for her realistic depiction of drapery and figures. Spencer Finch’s “Asteroid,” an ethereal light installation, hangs in the dining room of the on-site restaurant. And in the lobby’s entryway you’ll find Lava Thomas's "Resistance Reverb: Movements 1 & 2,” a nod to the historical use of tambourines by protestors and advocates during times of activism.
HALL Arts Hotel offers more than 6,000 square feet of meeting and events space, including two multipurpose salon spaces, the HALL Arts Boardroom, a 2,500-square-foot grand ballroom and an outdoor urban garden.
