SpringHill Suites by Marriott Launches Art on the Road Tour Across America to Showcase Influential Local Art Forms and Their Contemporary Masters
From unique blown glass creations in Seattle to the magnificent architecture of Chicago, art forms across America have sprung from both historic and modern influences. SpringHill Suites by Marriott, an all-suite hotel brand known for its appreciation of local art, launched Art on the Road: 10 Cities, 10 Discoveries, a journey to highlight some of the most talented contemporary artisans and their work across the country. Embracing style and design as key elements of the brand, SpringHill Suites inspires travelers to explore new destinations. Art on the Road is yet another avenue that allows guests and brand fans to experience the local flare.
To chronicle the local finds, SpringHill Suites teamed up with Ken Kaminesky, an international travel and lifestyle photographer whose work has been featured in National Geographic, among others, to capture images and write about his travel across the United States. In addition to featuring local art forms through pictures, Kaminesky will bring his entire sojourn to life as he makes his way from coast to coast, with 10 stops along the way.
“Art on the Road is an extension of SpringHill Suites’ commitment to offer our guests a way to discover destinations and connect with art through travel,” said Callette Nielsen, vice president and global brand manager, SpringHill Suites by Marriott. “We’re focusing on 10 cities and 10 art forms to spotlight the diversity and beauty that is represented in those areas.”
Art lovers across America can follow Kaminesky’s journey as he documents his whereabouts and discoveries on SpringHill Suites’ Facebook page at http://apps.facebook.com/artontheroad. Along the route, fans will have the chance to experience Kaminesky’s discoveries and win one-of-a-kind souvenirs from his journey.
“I’m passionate about travel photography, and discovering local art is a new way to see a city,” said Kaminesky. “Partnering with SpringHill Suites provides a fantastic opportunity to inspire others to make time to explore local art and experience the culture around them when
