The Omni Hotel Grand Opening Showcases Local Artists
Who's attending the "DEFINITELY DALLAS" ribbon cutting ceremony at the new Omni Dallas Convention Center Hotel today? Over 7,000 sculptures, paintings, and drawings grace the hotel -- all by local artists. This project was spearheaded by Creative Directors/Artists Frankie Garcia and Jeremy McKane, of FGIII Art and McKane Consulting. Due to their efforts to launch this massive project off the ground that began over a year ago, the new Omni Hotel will feature original work by local artists instead of typical "hotel-art" which often is synonymous with bland and unmemorable cookie-cutter prints. This effort is going to give a heart and soul, to the Omni one with a palpable beat of Dallas Culture.
Several local artists were commissioned to create all of the artwork in the new Omni Hotel and I am humbled to have my paintings featured among such a wonderful group of talent! Here is a sneak peek of some of my 25 paintings to be featured.
It's going to be so exciting to see the artwork unveiled today. See you later!
