HONG KONG, Dec. 7, 2019 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- The first hotel group to partner with Affordable Art Fair in multiple destinations, Dorsett Hospitality International took part at the fairs in Hong Kong (May 2019), Battersea Autumn in London (October 2019) and Singapore (November 2019).
Inspired by Dorsett Hotels' signature blue bird, a symbol of travel and discovery, Hong Kong art duo Stickyline created a large-scale art installation based on the hotel group's three core brand colours: Dorsett Hotels & Resorts (blue), d. Collection (orange) and Silka (purple). The installation featured a collection of 3D birds of various sizes gathered round a traditional Chinese egg tart, embodying Dorsett's passion to enrich travel and guest experiences while always embracing local culture.
"We were delighted to partner with Dorsett Hospitality International (DHI) in Hong Kong, Battersea London and Singapore throughout 2019. DHI's provided a platform to bring exciting Hong Kong local talent to a regional and international stage?something that fits extremely well with our global ethos at Affordable Art Fair, about discovering new artists," says Affordable Art Fair's Regional Managing Director and Board Member for Asia Pacific, Stephanie Kelly.
To coincide with this partnership, Dorsett hotels in each of the three cities created their own art experience for both hotel guests and the local community to enjoy. Dorsett Wanchai hosted an art talk which discussed "How can art thrive in Hong Kong?" moderated by journalist, cultural critic and founder of the Cultural Journalism Campus, Vivienne Chow.
Dorsett Shepherds Bush in London brought together families from Wormholt Primary School and the Shepherd's Bush neighbourhood for an afternoon of bird-folding at the hotel, showing off Dorsett's love for art, community as well as the therapeutic benefits of art and creativity for young children.
Lastly, Dorsett Singapore will be displaying part of the final art installation showcased by Stickyline at Affordable Art Fair Singapore in November in their lobby throughout the Christmas period; offering guests and art-lovers alike the opportunity to celebrate the festive season with a fun and engaging art experience.
