The 21C Hotel in Louisville

The 21C Hotel. Such a fantastic concept and so stimulating! Honestly, I think a hotel like this would be popular in any city! The man working at the little shop in the Arts and Crafts Gallery across the street told us that the hotel was finally expanding and opening up new versions in a few other cities. No surprise there. 

We enjoyed the main art installation that's there now ... works by Anthony Goicolea ... and we enjoyed some of the permanent installations that were there when we last visited 2 years ago.

I love the steam vats that release little puffs of steam at various times. It's a zen thing for me. You can watch it from ground level or a level up or even from outside.

Three sides of one large foyer are papered in a black velvet, glow-in-the-dark mural. Love it!
Photos of stacked books. I can't resist stacked books.

The falling text ... between the elevators ... fascinates me. Obviously.  *sigh* More zen. Don't I look Zen? Art. It's a wonderful thing.
