Event description

Description

What happens when you let a bunch of artists loose in your hotel? They paint every room, bathroom, hallway, and stairwell, of course.

Join New York Adventure Club for an exclusive, behind-the-scenes tour of the 54-room Carlton Arms Hotel, which has become a vibrant permanent exhibition of art with every inch of space covered by the incredible colorful works of artists from around the world.

Led by one of the hotel managers, our special experience will include:


  • The history and story behind Carlton Arms Hotel and why it began letting artists paint the walls in 1984
  • A walkthrough of the five-story hotel and its current art installations including paintings, sculptures, and mosaics
  • A peek inside several of its fantastical and whimsical hotel rooms, each one done by a different artist
  • A discussion around the Carlton Arms Art Project, which offers selected artists free room and supplies for the time needed to complete their project
