Since 2012, Circa 1881 has curated the public areas of The Peninsula New York with artworks by contemporary masters borrowed for our Lending Library. The artworks exhibited are rotated annually to keep the guest experience fresh and exciting.
The goals of this project were to present world class contemporary art that reflect the luxury and contemporary culture associated with The Peninsula brand. Circa 1881 works closely with the hotel to curate exhibitions that enhance the guest experience and help the hotel meet strategic goals.
The collaboration between Circa 1881 and The Peninsula New York has grown to include projects at other Peninsula properties and special projects around key NYC events.
