From a gallerist’s perspective. See Art Chicago includes a curated self-guided tour hand-picked by The James Chicago’s hotel art partner, Monique Meloche Gallery. Monique and team have curated a unique guide to Chicago’s vibrant art scene across the city – from the cultural institutions and hidden art gems of the Magnificent Mile, to the commercial galleries and nonprofits of the West Loop and Wicker Park.

During your visit in Chicago, enjoy select works from Alleys and Parking Lots, a series by Chicago artist Joel Ross, a longtime collaborator of the Monique Meloche gallery.

When visiting The James New York, experience the #JamesPublicArt project. In collaboration with acclaimed curator and Grey Area co-founder Kyle DeWoody, The James commissioned Brooklyn-based artist Paul Wackers to create an original public art mural for the hotel’s 6th Avenue façade. 

The public art installation, entitled Slow Dance and the Daylight, is an intimate tableau of potted plants, personal mementos, shapes and lines, the latter lending themselves to the complex architecture of the hotel.
