Supporting the arts and the local community is an important facet of our hotel's mission. This year, we hired a local artist Tony Caprai to do a dumpster door painting, and to create a colorful work of art on the ugly trash bins. He transformed our ugly dumpster door, painting an engaging scene that transformed the eyesore into something beautiful and inspiring. It's a tribute to the night workers - people who the guests may never see, but who keep the world running. We're proud to showcase the work of this fine artist, and to pay our respects to the seldom-seen workers of the world. Here's a little background about the local artist who:
Working in oils, acrylic paints, and aerosol, Tony Caprai's unique and thought provoking imagery feature nocturnal scenes based on cityscapes. His painting process sways between realism and non-representational abstraction, and contains elements of aggregated contrast, expressive light sources, and lots of black. Conceptually, these odd and sometimes disorienting night paintings contain themes of dreams, memories, imagination, and hallucination.
You can also find Caprai's work at nearby art galleries including the Flying M, Fulton Street Gallery, and The Crux. He has also performed live art installations at festivals, including the Treefort Music Festival, Freak Alley Gallery Mural Project, and MASSV Music Festival in Sun Valley.
