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, working pop-up art studio and gallery located in the hotel living room. Local artists take center stage as our featured artists in residence, and utilize the studio to bring their creative works to life. We invite our guests and local community to stop in for cocktails at Blue Hound, and take the unique opportunity to watch the artistic processes, and appreciate art at inception, right there in the moment.
