NU Hotel Brooklyn and its neighborhood partners are hosting an art opening, where friends and neighbors of the hotel are invited to tour the rooms and meet the artists on February 21.

NU Perspectives rooms feature floor-to-ceiling murals by local artists.

“The NU Perspectives project epitomizes NU Hotel’s dedication to art and the Brooklyn community,” said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyn’s general manager.

Local artists have brought their creative touch to the walls of NU Hotel Brooklyn, literally, by transforming a few of the hotel’s 93 rooms with floor-to-ceiling murals for the NU Perspectives project. To celebrate the imaginative and colorful murals, the hotel is hosting a NU Perspectives art opening on February 21, 2013 with neighborhood partners Urban Folk Art®, Brooklyn Republic Vodka and Bar Tabac.

The evening’s festivities kick off at 6 p.m. with a gallery reception at Urban Folk Art®/ Brooklyn Tattoo, an art gallery and tattoo shop located down the street from the hotel. The gallery is co-owned and co-operated by NU Perspectives artist, Adam Suerte.

Immediately following the reception, guests are invited to an art opening and tour from 7 p.m. – 9 p.m. at NU Hotel on the corner of Smith Street and Atlantic Avenue in Downtown Brooklyn. At the opening, NU Perspectives artists will discuss their artistic and creative process. Misdemeanor, NU Hotel’s lobby bar and lounge, will host the reception featuring light bites and a cash bar. Complimentary vodka will be provided by liquor sponsor Republic Vodka from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m.

“The NU Perspectives project epitomizes NU Hotel’s dedication to art and the Brooklyn community,” said Javier Egipciaco, NU Hotel Brooklyn’s general manager. “The NU Perspectives guestrooms have already received a great response from our guests – now it’s time to showcase them to the larger community through an event that travels around the neighborhood with NU Hotel at its core.”

Starting at 9 p.m., Bar Tabac, a French bistro located down Smith Street, invites NU Perspectives party attendees to an after party featuring live music. Attendees receive a complimentary glass of champagne with the purchase of a dinner entrée.
