Saint Kate — The Arts Hotel is now open in Milwaukee. The hotel considers itself one of the first hotels in the United States to celebrate art across all forms.
Guests find more than 100 works of art across the hotel’s permanent collection and special rotating exhibits. On the first floor, the hotel displays life-sized sculptures, lithographs and works by influential contemporary artists. On the second floor, a site-specific installation depicts the contrasting nature of smoke plumes, while a digitally altered panoramic photograph depicts naturally repetitive landscapes.
Each floor of guestrooms is dedicated to a certain form of art, including photography, industrial design, painting, mixed media, music, printmaking, performance and illustration.
Additionally, the hotel houses the Museum of Wisconsin Art’s first downtown location, a 1,700-square-foot premier gallery in the lobby. The Artist-in-Residence Company also created a permanent rehearsal and performance space at the hotel and the hotel’s Arc Theatre seats 95 for a variety of shows. Pop-up performances likewise take place throughout the property, including improv and interpretive dance.
“At Saint Kate, we are curating an experience designed to stir one’s imagination, invite exploration and challenge thinking,” said Greg Marcus, president and CEO, The Marcus Corporation, which owns and manages Saint Kate. “More than an exquisite hotel, Saint Kate is a powerful reminder of the beauty that can be found in the creative process. Whether you’re conceiving something big and bold, or quiet and subtle, Saint Kate is here to support, empower and instigate.”
