I'm following up from yesterday's post with two more of the artistic pieces from the recent remodel of the Renaissance Hotel in downtown Phoenix. This steel and iron sculpture is behind the front desk and represents the downtown skyline of Phoenix. I was able to pick out a couple of the buildings, especially that giant sun burst that sits atop the city hall building. They didn't know the artist for this piece because it's one that has been with the hotel for a very long time. They've just moved it to amore prominent position. The wall behind it is composed of resin lizard tiles. There was another wall in the lobby that also had the same tiles.
The bright blue glass sculptures are secured to a wall on a landing that leads to the lower-level and the conference rooms for the hotel.
This one represents the precious water that is vital to being able to live in a desert environment.
I'll have more scenes from inside the hotel tomorrow.
