Will The Real Picasso Please Stand Up At Conrad Indianapolis?
Looking for your next hotel art fix? A visit to Conrad Indianapolis might well be in order, as the hotel is planning a 40-day exhibition that will feature 25 prints by Picasso—including an authenticated original drawing. Though unlike a certain Melbourne hotel we know, Conrad will not be encouraging anyone to steal anything.
But for Picasso fans, this will be a jackpot of sorts, as not one but two exhibitions will be installed in the hotel's first-floor public space. On view in the lobby will be the 25 etchings, lithographs and linoleum cuts; meanwhile, a series of posters authorized by Picasso (but created by another printer) will go up in the Alcove event space. We're guessing most folks will come through in search of the original Picasso—or maybe just a free glass of wine at the gallery opening on September 7.
The galleries will all be free and open to the public from Sept 4–Oct 14, and will even include an on-site Art Ambassador to walk visitors through the collection.
And should the prints prove too stimulating, you can always retire to one of the guest rooms, which start at around $251/night for a King and $431/night for a Corner Suite.
