Atop the Hotel on Rivington, Street Art Takes Hold
This image has been archived or removed.
It’s not just nightlife tune-ups, the Hotel on Rivington is seemingly trying to reinvent itself.
Last month, we noted the nightlife reboot on premise. The Shanghai-themed lounge, Jia (formerly Viktor & Spoils), and an as-yet-unnamed Mediterranean restaurant in the adjacent space. Both are by the collective hand of Roberto Buchelli (Beautique, Provocateur) and Corey Lane (partner in 13th Street Entertainment).
Atop the glass tower, however, a new art project is simultaneously taking root. It’s called “Art on Rivington,” and its output is visible on all corners down below. The rooftop endeavor is described with the catchphrase – “the art and energy of the streets of LES meets the glass tower sleek hotel on Rivington Street.”
California-based artist Christina Angelina was the inaugural participant in the program. She finished painting a mural called “R. Crow” last month, followed by Nick Walker. The anointed “artist in residence” painted one of his Heart Vandals, too.
