Last week I got an invite to this awesome celebration not only in honor of Andaz on 5th’s artist in residence Daniel St. George and the stunning mural you see to your left, but also to celebrate the second year of tbd Art!
tbd Art is a rotating art series celebrating the art and culture of New York City, featuring a handful of different artists within the hotel and also providing an interactive art experience by allowing a selected artist – this time it was Daniel St. George – to create a mural at the entrance of The Bar Downstairs at Andaz on 5th.
You can read Daniel St. George‘s daily journal from the four day creative process as well as see a photograph of the progress Daniel made each day on Andaz’s Tumblr. Inside The Bar Downstairs there are also selections on the wall from his collection that are incredible to view in person with the detail being so fine and the pieces being unique and unlike anything I have ever seen before.
No matter what you do you should without a doubt take a stroll by 41st & 5th where Andaz on 5th is and check out the mural Daniel St. George created for them. It sits on the 5th Avenue side right across from the New York Public Library.
