Now through the end of September, we're proud tohouse the debut of the immersive installation, The Nature of Artifice, by Eliana Petrides of Parsons Art School.

A vinyl decal of Eliana'soriginal paintings round out the installation, wrapping several hotel windows,while guests receive limited edition collector's key cards with one-of-a-kinddesigns.
