Embracing the Arts in Downtown Phoenix

Art Exhibition at Hotel Palomar

Downtown Phoenix Local Artist Showcase

Over the past decade, the art scene of downtown Phoenix has blossomed and become central to the city’s cultural identity - and it is no different here at Kimpton Hotel Palomar Phoenix.

ARTLAB, powered by Artlink, is our new fully-functional and working pop-up art studio and gallery located in the hotel living room. Every eight weeks, a local artist will take center stage as our featured artist in residence, and utilize the studio to bring their paintings, pottery and other forms of creative art to life. We invite our guests and local community to stop in for cocktails or wine and to take this opportunity to appreciate art as it is created right in front of you.
