THE LANGHAM, BOSTON ART COLLECTION
The Langham, Boston’s new art collection was curated by Richmond International with many of the pieces paying homage to the building’s banking history in the 1900’s and its rich Boston heritage. The art collection includes 60 commissioned pieces of 268 total works, 126 of which have a local connection. Many pieces from the hotel’s collection were sourced from The Copley Society, the oldest artistic non-profit in the United States.
The Langham, Boston is thrilled to introduce a self-guided virtual video and audio tour of the stunning art collection that pays homage to its Boston heritage. Many of the recordings are of the artists speaking to and explaining their works.
“Each piece in our extensive art collection reflects our building’s history as the former Federal Reserve Bank of Boston as well as our rich Boston identity,” said Michele Grosso, Managing Director of The Langham, Boston. “It was important to us to utilize local artists, especially during the pandemic. We are looking forward to our guests having the ability to learn more about our collection from the artists themselves.”
