Defining a New Canvas
It’s no secret that many of America’s most interesting inventions and innovators have come from Boston, and we wanted to show off that local brilliance inside our own walls. In the spirit of bold action that's our hotel's namesake, we brought in a noted street artist and a local team of sculpture artists to put their stamp on a piece of Beantown.
The Foyer Mural
We brought in street artist Tristan Eaton to create a colossal, 65-foot foyer mural inspired by the paintings found in legendary local buildings like the Boston Public Library. He chose to tell Boston's story through a visual collage of pop imagery, executed entirely in freehand spray paint. As you peruse the mural, you’ll see a tribute to Boston's revolutionary heritage and rebellious spirit.
Eaton left his mark upstairs, too, with a custom carpet design for our guest floors that plays off the style of the foyer mural. The duo of designs is thought provoking, and unlike any other art you’ll see in a Boston hotel.
Created by the Boston-based team known as Individuals Collective, the three-story Innovation Tower is the centerpiece of our lobby, and celebrates Boston’s revolutionary lineage in innovation. Wrapped around the elevator column and spanning three stories, this installation features physical objects collected throughout the year prior to its creation, each representing a significant invention from the region, from the basketball to flamingo lawn ornaments, Bose headphones to the typewriter, to the optical mouse and beyond, rendered in a monochromatic white to maintain its simple yet bold impact.
