The Story

As a part of Sage Hospitality’s art initiative to create distinct mini-museums inside each and every Sage hotel, we curated Embassy Suites Boulder’s art collection to connect directly to the city’s unique reputation. As a city committed to sustainability, open space preservation, and overall health of the environment, we selected artworks by local artists who are specifically wrestling with these issues. The hotel’s close proximity to the University of Colorado Boulder and Sage’s long-standing commitment to partnering with higher education institutions inspired us to seek work by current students, faculty and alumni of CU’s art department for the collection. The art collection provides a cohesive and nuanced look at Boulder’s wildlife and natural environment, engaging guests through a variety of mediums and installations, and sparking thought and conversation around these important issues throughout the collection.

Our ability to create authentic experiences for our guests is a key differentiator against our competition, and the art program that NINE dot ARTS created is a prime example.
