Museum-quality artwork featured in collection of renovated Joule Hotel in Dallas
Andy Warhol, Electric Chairs (II.81), 1971.

DALLAS, TX.- The Joule Hotel in Dallas occupies a revitalized 1920’s neo-gothic, landmark Dallas building and is currently in the process of a $78 million renovation and expansion expected to be completed by end of summer 2013. A visual masterpiece from award-winning designer Adam D. Tihany, the hotel creates a tasteful union of old world quality and contemporary design, a cantilevered glass rooftop pool, and populated throughout by original artwork from names including Andy Warhol, Los Carpinteros, Tony Cragg, Adam Fuss and Richard Phillips. In pursuing the resurgence of Downtown Dallas – the expansion includes a subterranean spa by ESPA; a roof terrace with a glass shaft, street-entrance elevator; a subterranean craft cocktail lounge; 29 new guest suites and 3 new penthouse suites; new restaurant concepts; and 7 new retail outlets, including a TASCHEN Library and LA retailers, TenOverSix and Traffic LA.

Owner Tim Headington has continued to acquire museum quality works for the newly renovated Joule. Returning guests of the Joule and new visitors will instantly recognize that the freshly renovated spaces are filled with artworks that are fully charged. The new works will complement the existing collection in a way that will delight the guests. The selection of artists are for the enjoyment of the discerning art enthusiasts and the casual admirer alike.

One of the latest acquisitions is a major bronze work resembling an enormous Chambered Nautilus by the celebrated British artist Tony Cragg. A significant work by the Havana, Cuba based collective Los Carpinteros will be a fresh addition to the collection as well. The groups elegant and humorous sculptures, drawings, and installations draw their inspiration from the physical world. A new medium for the Joule and a fitting tribute to travel, a video installation titled Global Express by Argentinean born artist Leandro Erlich will be installed soon. Erlich has designed and fabricated a real train car window framing a video screen.

Not to mention, the collection will include a variety of young artists making an impact in the current art scene, i.e. Noam Rappaport, Anthony Pearson & Rosana Castrillo Diaz to name a few. The hotel is worth multiple visits, new acquisitions and works from the collection are periodically rotated into the public spaces. The Joule Art Collection is an unexpected amenity, especially in today’s typical hotel experience.
