Celebrate design at Center City’s Le Meridien Philadelphia, and experience works of art by local artists/designers in the lobby, curated by Gaby Heit. Discover how design and visual art mix with intriguing historical flair. The space, originally conceived as a turn of the century YMCA, has been converted into a luxury hotel and gathering place for Philadelphia’s creative class. A handcrafted cocktail will be available at reduced cost during DesignPhiladelphia to help participants more fully experience the exhibition and space.
Participating artists: Allan Espiritu, Sara McCorriston, Dolores Poacelli, Sean Stoops and Michele Tremblay.
A fiber optic lighting design installation by Lyn Godley is in the 5th floor atrium.
