Art and Travel
Each hotel Gallery Walls boast artworks made by artists from the geographic region in which hotels are located, in order to merge the love for art and travel. Each artwork is an expression of the spirit and the style of that region. The agreement with SpringHill Suites marks the first large-scale marketing partnership between Society6 and a hotel brand to empower local and independent artists.
The Gallery Wall will appear in every lobby of the SpringHill Suites. Each artwork will be created by an independent artist who has a special connection to the region.
The 10 regions are Canada and Alaska, Pacific Northwest, California, Southwest, West, Midwest, Texas and Oklahoma, South, Florida and North Atlantic.

Art in support of artists
The artwork will also be featured on the hotel’s key-cards, serving as a unique collector’s item for each region. Interested guests will also have the opportunity to purchase the reproduced artwork on a personalized product – pillows, telephone cases, yoga mats, clothing and more – with a portion of every purchase going directly to the artist.
