Thirty years after opening its doors, The Peninsula New York celebrates it’s anniversary with an exhibition of famous artists. It is free and can be seen in the public spaces of the building. Prominent and original works of Andy Warhol, Francesco Clemente, Keith Haring, Jean-Michael Basquiat, Barbara Kruger and Michael Halsband invite you to go back in time the early years of the hotel, the 1980’s. With their reputation of exclusiveness, The Peninsula New York has chosen an ambitious and superb melange of famous and skilled artists.
New York City sparked Mexican artist Rufino Tamayo’s imagination during his early visits in the 1920s and 1930s. At the time, Manhattan was a burgeoning new hub for the art world that welcomed artists from all over and supported cross-cultural exchanges.
