As part of the Artist in Hotel program, the Park Hotel in Tokyo has handed four of its rooms to four Japanese artists to be transformed into works of art.
Art is an important aspect of the philosophy of the Park Hotel located in Shiodome, Tokyo, Japan. The four-star hotel has developed an Art Colors program in order to introduce Japanese culture to visitors. Throughout the year, several exhibitions are planned for the atrium, restaurant and even guestrooms.
Until September 1, visitors will be able to take in the creations of the Yokai Tour exhibition, dedicated to unusual phenomena. They are also invited to spend a night in an actual piece of art.
Reservations for the Zen room by artist Seihaku Akiba, have been open since Aug, 1. The calligrapher, who usually works around the theme of meditation, has just applied the finishing touches to the room as part of the Artist in Hotel program.
In total, four rooms are destined to be transformed. “Sumo” by Hiroyuki Kimura celebrates famous Japanese wrestlers and has been welcoming visitors since February 2013. As for the other two rooms to be unveiled in November 2013 and February 2014, the names of the artists and the themes have not been revealed yet.
