It was very exciting to be part of this abstract modern art collection. The owner of this hotel chain also owns a church in his town and is passionate about helping people overcome their challenges. He loves this collection because the artist is a former Iraqi Kurd living in Canada and has overcome immense hardship and adversity. He feels the artist has the power to influence hotel guests in a very positive way. The collection currently includes ten-water color pieces that line the halls and important rooms at the hotel. This is the first gallery of what will ultimately include dozens of the paintings that will be displayed throughout the hotel.
