The James hotel recently unveiled a new public art project! The work was created by Chicago-based artist Alexander Valentine in collaboration with Johalla Projects. The art installation, titled “Pace and Space” can be seen on the facade of The James on Rush Street.
The work consists of a pair of collages and was inspired by the interior spaces of the hotel, perceptual noise, and the language of interactive and immersive media. The artist, Alexander Valentine will be created a limited edition screen print to complement the art installation, which will be sold by The James Chicago.
The best place to view the artwork is from The Patio on Rush Street. The Patio is open every day and the menu features cocktails and shareable plates from David Burke’s Primehouse. Plus they have weekly happy hour specials. Cocktails and food on a sunny Chicago patio with a view of an art installation? What more could you want. You might want to add this to your weekend plans.
