Montgomery, Curated By Nall

The last time we stayed overnight in Montgomery, we decided to stay at the Renaissance Hotel (it’s one of the Marriotts that the RSA has) because I’d heard it had been completely filled with art curated by Nall.

We had a great view of the depot and the Alabama River.

One of the big pluses of staying here is that at night you can walk down to the riverfront through the tunnel that’s lit with differently colored lights (another Bill FitzGibbons work? I don’t think so, but it’s definitely inspired by him if not). Here’s Shug running through it:

We walked all over downtown, then came back to the hotel to see the art. These pieces behind check-in are by Mary Catherine Watson:
