About this Tour
Take a curated arts tour through Angad Arts Hotel, the first hotel in the world that you can book your room by the emotion of color. Arts Relations Manager and Curator, Vanessa Rudloff, will take you through the colorful rooms showcasing local artwork, to the Chameleon Lamp that immerses our guests in a 360-degree video art experience, and end your tour with the rooftop skyline views of the Angad Rooftop Terrace. Learn the history of the building and the exciting exhibitions currently on display by local artists in this Grand Center Arts District destination.
Black Nonpareil is the hotel’s bi-annual exhibit, which will be on display from November 1, 2020 through April 25, 2021. The exhibit consists of a total of 29 pieces of artwork from 17 local artists. The majority of the artwork will be featured in the 12th floor lobby, with some additional works on the first floor and in ART Bar. Artists featured include: Jen Everett; Lola Ogbara; Cbabi; Kevin + Danielle McCoy; Tai Davis; Vaughn Davis Jr.; Noel Spiva; De’Joneiro Jones; Dail Chambers; Kenya Mitchell; Cisqo Rodman; Blakk; Adrian Octavius Walker; Tiffany Sutton; Brock Seals and Jerel Canty. 10 percent of all sales from the Black Nonpareil exhibit will be donated to the All Black Creatives Foundation, which provides free classes, networking opportunities, and job referrals to emerging Black leaders in creative and tech fields.
“Black Nonpareil is curated from the work of local Black artists to amplify their voices and provide a platform to continue revelating conversations and the growth of our city through their work,” said Vanessa Rudloff, Art Relations Manager at Angad Arts Hotel. “They are an integral part of our St. Louis arts community and an inspiration to our next generation.”
Imperfect Pixels is a solo exhibit by Travis Sheridan, a local artist who has spent his career as a community designer and is focused on creating environments that stimulate thinking, engagement and capacity building. This is an immersive, interactive exhibit for patrons, as Travis asks us to “slow down and remember those the Black community has lost.” The work consists of nine images that only become clear to the viewer when they stop and interact with them and allows the person to pause and have a personal moment with each piece. The exhibit is a series of nine portraits that are pixelated and inverted. Glass orbs will be provided for the patrons to view. This provides the viewer with an intimate moment to view the art only seen with the orb.
As the hotel’s quarterly exhibit, Imperfect Pixels will be on display from November 1, 2020 through January 31, 2021. 25 percent of all sales from the exhibit will be donated to the All Black Creatives Foundation and an additional 25 percent will be donated to one of three organizations of the patron’s choice.
