Two artists with work currently on display at The Phillips Collection, Jorge Pardo and Intersections artist Alyson Shotz, have been selected to design and fill public spaces in a new hotel, the Alexander, to be built in downtown Indianapolis. This story is noteworthy not only because of the beautiful possibilities, but because of the unique nature of this project’s inception: a partnership between the Indianapolis Museum of Art and the real estate developer constructing the hotel, as reported in the New York Times.
