Artist: Sara J. Frantz
Project: Hotel SLO, San Luis Obispo, CA
Gensler Architects

Each guest room at Hotel SLO features a limited edition print by Los Osos-based artist and Cal Poly professor, Sara J. Franz. Six original drawings were commissioned for the project, and feature striking architectural landmarks of the town, conveyed through Franz’s unique color palette and style.

 

Artist: Leigh Merrill.
Project: Harmon Guest House, Healdsburg, CA
David Baker Architects

Leigh Merrill produced three custom photographs for the hotel based on the Healdsburg area. She captured thousands of images of a setting, then stitched the pictures together to create a familiar yet surreal tableau. Her contemporary comment on perceived place is imbued with a hint of humor. Prints of these photographs are distributed amongst the 36 guest rooms.
