Artist in Residence
Arnie Charnick, NYC-based Muralist
Arnie Charnick, a Bronx NY born and raised muralist, joins us at Hotel Edison from January through April 2018 to complete three original works in our newly-renovated corridor on West 46th Street in between Eighth Avenue and Broadway. The three murals show the evolution of Times Square, from the early 1900’s to the 1980’s.
“I prefer painting in public like this to show people the process and to share it with them … A lot of artists would not want anyone bugging them while they work, but I like the social interaction of sharing with people the process here. It’s fun.”
The Artist in Residence program is a new initiative launched by Triumph Hotels which allows artists to collaborate with our six properties across Manhattan ranging from painting, music curation, photography, temporary installations, and more.
