At 21c, art is an unexpected encounter, a new idea, and a starting point for lively conversation. It is around every corner •• in the elevators, hallways, landings, public restrooms, and The Hive’s dining room and bar + lounge. Installations flow onto the city sidewalk, engaging guests and passerby’s alike. 21c believes art can and should be part of daily life, rather than something that can only be seen on a planned trip to a formal institution. During your visit, we invite you to discover and explore the exhibitions. The Museum is free and open to the public 24/7. Popular site•specific works and exhibitions include:
Green Penguins, Cracking Art
The Green Penguin flock was created by Cracking Art, a collective of artists who inspire people to consider art simultaneously fun and thought-provoking. Sculpted from recycled plastic, the fleet of 4-foot birds serves as a playful reminder of the importance of sustainability and environmental conservation. The sculptures migrate throughout 21c each day and night.
Site Specific Art at 21c Bentonville
Tree of 40 Fruits, Sam Van Aken
The Tree of 40 Fruits is quite literally a fruit tree that will grow forty varieties of fruit from the family of stone fruits, including peach, plum, apricot, nectarine, cherry and the hybrid species therein. Blossoming in variegated tones of white and pink in early spring, and burdened by fruit in late summer this work draws its significance from the number forty. Found throughout history and in particular in western religious texts, the number forty symbolizes the innumerable, a bounty beyond calculation.
Orange Tree, Alexandre Arrechea
Orange Tree, Alexandre Arrechea’s large scale sculpture of a metal tree sprouting basketball hoops and surrounded by basketballs, is a sculptural exploration of the relationship between sports and urban street culture. Referencing found objects, architecture, nature, and imagery from popular culture, Arrechea creates work that is engaging and provocative, accessible, and profound.
Untitled, Mattia Bonetti
Mattia Bonetti was born in Lugano, Switzerland, in 1952, and currently lives and works in Paris. He received formal training as a designer at the Centro Scolastico per l’lndustria Artistica in Lugano. After moving to Paris in 1973, he worked as a textile designer, style consultant, and art photographer.
Unfolded, Chris Doyle
Referencing paper currency in shape and design, Chris Doyle’s Unfolded belongs to the same body of work as Waste Generation (2010), the animation featured in the Video Lounge as part of the inaugural exhibition,
Sudden Gust of Wind, Sekan Ozkaya
Istanbul based artist Serkan Ozkaya’s A Sudden Gust of Wind in Bentonville is comprised of 400 sheets of metal that emulate a scattered stack of 8.5″ x 11″ papers, frozen in motion across the ceiling and descending in a looping, funnel formation to the floor. Alluding to the beauty found in the moments or seconds between action and destruction, control and chaos, A Sudden Gust of Wind in Bentonville is one of a series of related installations referencing older artworks of the same title.
Hide and Seek, Anne Peadbody
In Hide and Seek, the glass drawing of a forest is made up of large digitally rendered trees, which grow more and more transparent as they recede. The darker trees in the foreground create areas in which people can hide completely from the outside world, while the more transparent background trees and foggy areas transform him or her from a viewer into an object being viewed. This boundary is constantly crossed as patrons walk through space, passing by and through trees of varying opacities.
Flow 5.0, Daan Roosegaarde
This interactive sculpture by Dutch artist Daan Roosegaarde is a smart wall composed of hundreds of ventilators that respond to passing visitors. By walking and interacting with its surface, the viewer triggers the emergence of an elusive landscape created out of transparent fields and artificial winds.
Flypaper, Rob Wynne
Rob Wynne was born in 1950 in New York, where he currently lives and works. His work has been featured in solo exhibitions at Locks Gallery, Philadelphia, PA (2008); JGM. Galerie, Paris, France (2008); Craig Starr Associates, New York, NY (2006); and Galerie Edward Mitterrand, Geneva, Switzerland (2001).
We aim to have a positive impact on the planet by taking steps to reduce our carbon, plastic and food waste – to do that 21c has implemented a 21c Sustainability Fee of $2 to help support that mission. Examples of our sustainability practices include providing every guest with PATH water bottles. PATH is the first certified refillable and 100% recyclable bottled water packaged in a sleek and sturdy, reusable aluminum container.
To improve indoor air quality and for the health and safety of our guests and team, 21c is a Smoke-Free Hotel. Guests wishing to smoke can do so outside on the sidewalk. A fee of $250 will be assessed to any room in which signs or smells of smoking are around.
