Everyone has artistic talent and we invite them to be part of the Miami art scene by entering the contest to transform the rooms at the Penguin Hotel.

The Penguin Hotel, located on the famous, sun-soaked Ocean Drive on South Beach, has always attracted snowbirds and beach babes, and now artists are flocking to the boutique hotel. Since launching The Big Picture, Interiors at The Penguin Hotel, a juried art contest open to artists of all skill levels, the hotel has offered a 10% discount on hotel stays for artists plus a $10 bar credit for those who enter the contest. The contest, which ends on January 30, 2015, seeks to find new images for the canvas wall in each of the hotel rooms. Winners receive $500 plus a two-night hotel stay.

“With the incredible growth of Art Basel and Miami Art Week, the opening of Pérez Art Museum last year, and the opening of the Institute of Contemporary Art Miami this year, Miami’s art culture is thriving,” stated Markus Friedli, owner of the Penguin Hotel, “We feel everyone has artistic talent and we invite them to be part of the Miami art scene by entering the contest to transform the rooms at the Penguin Hotel.”
