THE MODERN HOTEL IS ONCE AGAIN INVITING ARTISTS TO CHECK IN FOR THE NIGHT
BOISE, Idaho (May 5th, 2011) – The Modern Hotel is opening its doors for the 4th annual Modern Art event on Thursday, May 5th from 5-9pm. Over 80 artists have been invited to participate in Modern Art 2011, and for one evening they will transform the design hotel’s 38 Mid-Century modern rooms into everything from mini-gallery spaces to interactive pieces to full scale installations.

TONIGHT August 13th, Boise Bicycle Project presents ART BIKE at the Modern Hotel in the Linen District. Over 20 bicycles painted by local artists will be sold through live auction. Participants will enjoy music by Ned Evett and food & beverage will be available. Biking is encouraged, and valet service will be offered. Those who use the valet will be entered in a drawing for prizes. This event runs from 5 to 10 pm, and costumes are encouraged but not required. Contact the Boise Bicycle Project at email@example.com for questions.
Nothing could possibly allow us to know ourselves better,than our alter ego… Except maybe photographs of them?
Wherever you may be, a concert, a political event or even an art opening, AreCity will most likely be there. This citizen, journalist led group is studying and documenting culture, while expanding an understanding of life as we know it. May 7th (Modern Art 2009), AreCity took over room 222, inviting spectators to be the subject of a comical, yet charming series of photographs (very Wes Anderson).
Between 5:00pm and 9:30pm, the room became a beacon for modern technology, with filmed live streaming, twitter updates and hundreds of photographs. This post-modern approach to documenting, communicating and fun is just what Modern Art is about!
