REVISED: mONDAY, OCTOBER 10, 2016
Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center (at the Richardson Olmsted Complex) seeks 30-40 2-D and 3-D artworks to fill public spaces within the new hotel. Abstract, atmospheric, landscape, local, and/or movement-focused pieces will be prioritized. Only local artists from upstate New York are eligible to submit work. Both licensed prints and original pieces will be considered for 2-D artworks.
Seeking the following:
- Digital Media
- Small 3-D sculpture that create a sense of history
- Abstract photography and photo collage
- Mixed Media
General sizes of 2-D artworks are as follows:
- 28"W x 36"H
The sizes of the 3-D artworks are TBD.
Themes to focus on:
- Modern and whimsical, fun
- Classic and contemporary
- Colors, patterns that complement the interior of the space.
We are NOT looking for:
- Industrial heritage
- Discernable Buffalo scenes
- Historic photos
- Urban decay
For this project, we believe the artist net will be roughly between $130-$330/ licensed print. This will be dependent on the size of the artwork.
For original artwork, we can offer approximately $1,200-$2,200 per artwork, including shipping.
For 3-D artwork, we can offer approximately $1,000-$2,000 per artwork, including shipping.
About Hotel Henry:
One of Buffalo’s most iconic buildings and a National Historic Landmark, the 140-year-old Richardson Olmsted Complex, is being renewed after years of neglect. The Complex is being transformed into a cultural amenity for the city, beginning with Hotel Henry Urban Resort Conference Center and the Buffalo Architecture Center in the iconic Towers Building and two flanking buildings.
