Artistry flows through the Quin’s DNA and history. The Quin’s legacy is grounded in the artists who once resided where the hotel now stands. As Quin Week comes to a close, we would like to give you a sneak peek into the Quin’s captivating digital art wall. This 15- foot digital art wall will exhibit a curated collection of rotating mixed media, photography and film in the lobby.
Currently, the Quin is featuring the work of Robert Christian Malmberg. The art wall showcases four of his alluring pieces which he crafted using the Collodion technique. This wet plate process of photography dates back to 1880’s, requiring very intricate and careful procedures. With a highly specialized camera, a glass plate and exotic chemicals, the photographer develops the photo within minutes of capturing it. Only very few have learned this rigorous craft and the Quin is extremely fortunate of have Robert Malmberg showcase his work through the digital art wall.
The Video Art Wall is only one of the elements of the Quin Arts program. Quin Arts is an interactive arts program that celebrates the property’s rich heritage and produces exciting new spaces for contemporary artists. A multi-faceted and multi-dimensional endeavor, Quin Arts will exhibit the digital art wall, a featured artist in our lobby-level gallery, and original artwork on our guestroom corridors. The dialogue continues online at www.theQuinhotel.com through features on various artists, exhibits, and programs.
This is one of the pieces of art on the guest room floors, by Lana Gomez entitled “From Here to Eternity.”
Thank you to the Quin for bringing contemporary art to your guests!
