Enjoy Local Art and a Comfortable Stay at the Renaissance

Edison, New Jersey Hotel's Lobby and Halls to Feature Artwork by David Banegas

ISELIN, NJ--(Marketwire - Oct 19, 2012) - Until it becomes part of its community, a hotel is nothing more than a building -- a nice place to stay, but still in need of warmth and local flavor. With Renaissance hotels, the people and neighborhoods surrounding any property become a part of its identity and charm, and give each hotel its own unique personality, complementing its ability to deliver the renowned Renaissance experience. With that in mind, the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel is proud to announce the addition of artwork by local artist David Banegas throughout the property.

A Bolivian born artist, David Banegas specializes in action painting. Based out of nearby Red Bank, NJ, Banegas is best known for his breathtakingly colorful portraits of Hollywood's historic and contemporary A-listers such as Marilyn Monroe, Heath Ledger, and Johnny Depp. While many artists focus on selling their work, Banegas participates in a number of events in support of charities and foundations, particularly children's charities around the United States and South America.

Through a special arrangement with the Renaissance Woodbridge Hotel, guests will have the opportunity to experience Banegas' unique talent and vision as they walk the halls, take a dip in the pool, or congregate in the lobby. To learn more about David Banegas, and see samples from his extensive portfolio, guests are invited to visit
