New Art Installation At The Ritz-Carlton
NEW ORLEANS – When The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans opened on Canal Street in October of 2000, they reinstalled life back into the traditional architecture of historic shopping emporiums Maison Blanche and Kress. Today, The Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans is still dedicated to reinvesting in New Orleans and the revitalization of Canal Street.
Last week, the hotel debuted their first art installation in their gallery windows to celebrate the essence of the city's flavor, collaborating with artists and events throughout the seasons. The inaugural installation by New Orleans native and award-winning artist, Kit Wohl is entitled “There's Nothing More New Orleans than a Festival.”
This installation is a silent salute to musicians long past, their music ghosted in shadows thrown by white instruments displayed against white walls – a toast to the city's season of festivals.
Future artists will continue to embody the city's rich heritage by creating powerful window displays that will feature events and themes such as Mardi Gras, the cultural season and the holiday season. These displays in the windows leading into the porte-cochère motor entrance of the hotel will engage locals and guests to the culture, history and elegance this city embodies.
