AC Hotel Greenville

an art-filled hotel paying homage to its city

Greenville, SC has been ranked as a top city on many "best of" lists, bringing lots of new traffic to our small city. As more people come to visit, hotels are built and one of the most exciting is the brand new AC Hotel right in the heart of our downtown.

One of the focuses for the hotel was to pay homage to the city AC Hotel Greenville calls home by highlighting Greenville's fine art scene. Auro Hotels, which owns AC Hotel Greenville, selected more than 30 local artists with the help of the Metropolitan Arts Council to participate in this one-of-a-kind collection and contracted with Art & Light Gallery to manage the commissioning process and overall placement of the collection.

Bracken Sansbury worked closely with Auro Hotels and designers to select placement of artworks by considering each participating artist's style, palette and technical abilities. Thus, creating a cohesive and expertly displayed collection, with more than 100 pieces of original commissioned artwork including murals, sculpture, fine art prints and paintings that flow together from space to space with ease.

Please enjoy images of this space below and when you plan your trip to Greenville or put together the perfect staycation, be sure to check out AC Hotel Greenville for a beautiful, artful place to eat, drink and rest your head.

Teresa Roche was inspired by Blackwater Gin for her commissioned works hanging in the gin-forward rooftop bar, Juniper.

The shelving in Juniper holds special original works of art by Dorothy Shain, Darin Gehrke and Glory Day Loflin.

12 foot tall plaster sculptures from Kim Dick stand tall in the lobby with two Glory Day Loflin paintings guiding the way to the hotel's marketplace.

Walker Reed's juniper painting entitled, "Gin on the House, Please" hangs beautifully in the bar's banquette.

Inspired by Greenville's Peace Center, Eli Warren's gorgeous photos of a dancer in motion bring the drama of theater to the space. We also spy custom wall vinyl by Teresa Roche on the wall these photographs hang.

Joseph Bradley created six pattern-like paintings that hang on partitions in the restaurant's Spanish, tapas-style restaurant concept, Paloma.
