Architectural Digest online profiled 21c Museum Hotels and the brand’s commitment to urban revitalization and presenting cutting-edge contemporary art to the public. The piece looks at the many historic buildings in the South and Midwest, including warehouses, bank towers, factory buildings, and old hotels, that we have transformed for the brand, which was founded by Louisville-based philanthropists and entrepreneurs Steve Wilson and Laura Lee Brown. “Steve and Laura Lee, profoundly devoted to their hometown, wanted to bring some new life downtown,” Deborah Berke, told AD. “Something forward-looking, but welcoming: cutting-edge art mixed with Southern hospitality. And the art wasn’t a marketing strategy; it’s truly what they’re passionate about.” Read more about our collaboration here.
