The Renaissance Midtown Hotel is located in the heart of Manhattan’s Garment District, a bustling neighborhood across from Madison Square Garden and Penn Station. The locale is famous for its connection to fashion, industrial grit, and glamour, themes that became a source of inspiration for the hotel’s design and unique art collection. Award-winning Jeffrey Beers International designed the interiors, which embrace the vitality of the district as a fashion hub by imbuing the space with creative energy. Working closely with the design team, we commissioned six custom works that reflect the property's surrounding environment through the use of fashion materials. Andre Woolery is an artist who travels between NYC and Jamaica. After a successful career in tech-advertising, Woolery decided to pursue his creative passions. His work spans across mediums of oil, installation and photography. He explores how the development of technology and race inform contemporary life, personal identity, history and culture. He created two statement pieces for the Renaissance Midtown Hotel sculpted from buttons and pins to express its strong connection to the Garment District.
