THE MODERN HOTEL IS ONCE AGAIN INVITING ARTISTS TO CHECK IN FOR THE NIGHT
BOISE, Idaho (May 5th, 2011) – The Modern Hotel is opening its doors for the 4th annual Modern Art event on Thursday, May 5th from 5-9pm. Over 80 artists have been invited to participate in Modern Art 2011, and for one evening they will transform the design hotel’s 38 Mid-Century modern rooms into everything from mini-gallery spaces to interactive pieces to full scale installations. Last year more than 3,000 visitors got an intimate view of work by artists of various disciplines in a 4 hour creative blitz.

Mad Men Cars (and bicycles)
When planning the last Mad Men affair, we had visions of the Modern parking lot filled with mid-century cars and motorcycles. We hoped for an entire display of the mid-century lifestyle- from transportation to dress.Being the last Mad Men party, it should go out with bang (or a rumble).
I have baggage, but not luggage…
Another month of mid-century fun at The Modern Hotel and Bar. This month guests were captured as they entered the hotel to check in for another salacious affair. In addition to the usual martini glasses and Lucky Strikes, guests were encouraged to wield vintage luggage to highlight their mid-century dress in the newest installment of the photo series by Rachel Reichert and Seth Ogilvie.

February’s Mad Men and Martinis kicked off with a Mahi Thai and an order of Oyster Rockfeller. Guests we once again encouraged to dress up and participate in the Mad Men costume contest, photographed by Rachel Reichert and Seth Ogilvie. This month participants were photographed in the Modern Hotel’s lobby. Contestants were encouraged to interact with the varying tabletop accessories (i.e. booze, Lucky Strikes and mid century fare), emphasizing the recurring indulgence of such substances throughout the series.
