Castle Hotel on I-Drive Orlando Showcases Winners of Local Artist Competition
Orlando, Florida – September 24th, 2018 – The Castle Hotel Autograph Collection® recently launched their Local Artist Competition in June 2018. The competition offered an opportunity for artists from around the area to submit their artwork for a chance to have it displayed for sale throughout the hallways of the Orlando boutique hotel.
The hotel launched the competition with an announcement in Orlando Weekly and on Facebook and Instagram, with a Local Artist Call in May. The hotel received 16 artist entries, and the top two were selected by the hotel’s Executive Team in July.
German Lemus and Mark Baird were chosen as the winners. The unique artwork provided by these artists will encourage guests of the hotel to visit the different floors of the property as well as attend the hotel’s weekly Wine Down Wednesday, where the artists will have the opportunity to interact with visitors and participate in live painting.
Both winning artists delivered their work by the end of August. Mark Baird’s nine pieces of artwork are displayed on the hotel’s ninth floor. German Lemus submitted 12 pieces of artwork, currently shown on the second floor of the International Drive hotel.
All artwork is for sale and guests can read biographies on each of the artists on the floor where the art is displayed.
