The flagship Drake Hotel is a creative incubator, connecting the public with artists working in all media from across town and around the world. Providing an entry point for guests to make meaningful connections with the art community, the Hotel presents an eclectic and constantly changing program of performance and visual art, in addition to a constantly growing permanent art collection. Artist residencies bring national and international artists to work in public space, allowing our audiences to get to know the artists of our time.
DRAKE ART is here to connect with the curious culture seeker in everyone. Since opening our doors in 2004, it has been our hope and intention that these programs will open eyes and minds, leading to a deeper cultural appreciation within our community and beyond. So go ahead, feast your eyes.
