Finalist exhibition shown at Carlton Arms Manhattan: Sept. 29th - Oct. 15th 2011
The Carlton Arms Hotel has become known as New York's art hotel due to its evolving conceptual art project. The "Artbreak Hotel" boasts some of the most striking quarters on Manhattan Island. With plenty of spirit and very basic conveniences, it's hallways, stairways, bathrooms and guest rooms explode with environmental art. As New York Newsday said "a riot of visual cacophony where up-and-coming artists from all over the globe take their talent to its walls. A live-in museum."
Gottfried Helnwein, member of Advisory Board
"In retrospect I would say from Donald Duck I have learned more about life than from all the schools I ever attended."
