    3 of our favorite things combined with 3 of our favorite Food Trucks…

    Modern Art is rapidly approaching and what does a hungry art lover do when she doesn’t want to tear herself her away from the awesomeness that is Modern Art?

    Relax, this year we have your back. Or your belly.

    The Boise Fry Company, Archie’s Place and B-29 Streatery’s Food Trucks will be
    waiting to serve you delicious fare All Night Long! Stationed along Grove Street right in front of the Modern Hotel and open from 4-11p.m., now you won’t have to choose between viewing the next Artist’s creative Room and fainting from lack of Chili Cheese Fries.

  • Modern Artists not confined to their rooms!

    Modern Art 2012 at the Modern Hotel
    May 3rd from 5-10p.m.

    For the last 4 years Modern Art at the Modern Hotel has happened on the First Thursday in May. Back in 2008, Michal Lloyd, the Manager of the Modern Hotel, thought it would be fun to turn over the Hotel to some artists for the night. So she asked a few friends and Modern family to choose a room and do something creative with it. Since that low key event was overwhelmingly poplar, with over 1,000 people nights have included a Modern Fishing installation by Sean Aucutt and Bob Neal, Poet Adrian Klien madly banging out poems on demand on his typewriter from various perches and Josie Fretwell and Rachel Reichart’s Fur Donut Shop in the kitchen, complete with tough talking counter gals.

    You were right, Michal, it IS fun!

    Take a look below at some of our past favorites, and make sure you check all the cracks and crevices around the Modern this year at ModArt12!
