Yes, campers, the moment has come to reveal what we have been looking at in about 90 hotel rooms in the West.
It’s definitely a light news day, so it’s time to share more of what we are experiencing when not on the road. The gallery some of you have been anxiously awaiting: our new collection of Hotel Art.
Some pieces may be familiar. Some may just seem completely banal. Others are not so bad. A few are very sad. And there were actually a few I wanted to put into the suitcase. Here they are (highlights only), for your viewing pleasure.
Stunning, eh? But what we hated the most was a new insidious type of hotel decor that must be stopped before it spreads any further. I understand it is rampant on cruise lines and other fancy places, but let’s hope it doesn’t migrate further into the mainstream world in which we live.
I am speaking of Towel Art – and thank goodness it was limited to the more effete population centers on our travels. No spottings since California, for which we were very grateful. What can we do to curb this trend? Travel is stressful enough without encountering these things in the bathroom.
So that’s the art news for the day. As an antidote, please support your local museums and finer galleries!
