Have you walked through the lobby of The Quin this month? In addition to the hotel’s permanent collection, distributed throughout, the lobby and drawing room are exhibiting Soren Solkaer: Heart Beat City which runs from top to bottom, enveloping the large, comfortable space in color. The Danish photographer, Solkaer, who is known for his distinctive portraits of musicians, currently has two seperate exhibits at The Quin. In addition to Soren Solkaer: Heart Beat City, the exhibit SURFACE, taken from his fine art photography book by the same name, is also on view. Below are a few photos of Quin Arts current exhibits, and several other pieces done by Artists-in-Residence, now part of a permanent collection. I do believe we caught the curator, DK Johnston, on the couch to the right.
