QT Wellington’s ‘Your Art. Our Rooms.’ initiative launched earlier this May, throwing down the challenge to the greater artistic community to submit artworks for the bedhead walls for 9 brand new guest rooms. The hotel’s challenge was incredibly well received, with over 270 entries from local and national artists. With such a high number of quality submissions, the Capital’s favourite quirky hotel then chose to adorn all 25 rooms on level 4 with bespoke artwork, quite a feat!
Introducing: Gallery 4…
Gallery 4 (level 4 of QT Wellington) welcomed its first guests on Thursday 1st November to experience and enjoy unique artwork on the walls, balconies and ceilings in the 25 rooms that make up the floor. With collaboration from 19 New Zealand artists, each guest will be able to immerse themselves in the bespoke artwork showcased in the QT Gallery rooms.
With art and design at the heart of the hotel’s identity, General Manager QT Wellington Garth Solly is excited to launch these artworks as the beginning of a new collection QT can call its own.
“Gallery 4 signifies QT really making our mark and identifying ourselves as a part of our country’s artistic community. We are thrilled we have an art collection where guests can fully immerse themselves in established and up-and-coming homegrown talent, as Gallery 4 boasts works by Angus Muir, D Side, Johnson Witehira and also fosters the next wave of artists.”
In addition to the launch of Gallery 4, from November 1st, the hotel will also be known as QT Wellington and will cease to include ‘Museum’ in the hotel name. The ever evolving QT Wellington will continue to grow its own art collection and honour the hotel’s history through the evolution of the eclectic art within its walls.
Shelley Indyk, architect and designer behind the hotel’s public spaces and guest rooms has creatively evolved bold interiors to hero the art. Guests can luxuriate in artistic brilliance complete with all the perks that people have come to know and love from a QT stay. QT Gallery and QT Harbourview Gallery rooms include the option of a private balcony looking out over the stunning Wellington Harbour.
Soon to be a popular addition to the mini bar, QT Wellington pays homage to this creative venture with a book outlining the Gallery 4, ‘Your Rooms. Our Art.’ initiative. It will be available in all 25 Gallery 4 rooms and in QT Wellington’s QTique.
QT Hotels & Resorts consistently challenge the status quo. And QT Wellington is a cultural playground built to celebrate creativity for all that stay and play here. The hotel is proud to introduce 25 original canvases in the form of 25 new guest rooms as Gallery 4 – be part of the art, design, curiosities and a dash of the absurd at QT Wellington.
Gallery 4 of QT Wellington launched, Thursday 1 November 2018.
