SBH South Beach Hotel Is Proud to Accommodate Participants of Life Is Art Seminar

MIAMI, FL--(Marketwired - Apr 1, 2015) - On February 17, 2015, the non-profit corporation Life is Art hosted a well-attended seminar on the topic 'Grants for Artists 2.0: Meet the Grant Makers' in South Beach, Florida. Three of Miami's leading art funders, namely the Department of Cultural Affairs, the Knight Foundation, and the Miami Foundation, seized the opportunity to connect with young artists and select candidates for their sought-after grants. Artists from all over the country flocked to the event to network with peers and grant makers, many of which stayed at the famed SBH South Beach Hotel, turning the Art Deco into a buzzing artist hub.

SBH South Beach Hotel has been the first choice of many artists and art-lovers alike since it re-opened in mid-2014. Recently, it welcomed the participants and visitors of the 13th Annual Art Basel Show, a four-day event featuring the works of international artists across 67 galleries in Miami Beach neighborhoods. Another perk for art-lovers staying at Hotel South Beach is its proximity to cultural attractions such as the CANDO Arts Co-Op, Miami City Ballet, and the Miami Design and Preservation League.

Guests staying at the thoughtfully decorated hotel can indulge their artistic senses as soon as they set foot in the historic building: Collins Park's latest luxury boutique hotel features art deco designs dating to the 1930s, authentic terrazzo flooring and hand-carved wood furniture from Guatemala, complemented by Santolov's unique ToysRLikeUs series adorning walls throughout the hotel. Local photographer and graphic designer Santlov created an eye-catching collection of photos depicting pop culture characters such as Toy Story's Woody or Batman's nemesis, The Joker, in everyday situations. The underlying main theme of his collection is the growing dependence on gadgets such as smartphones and iPods.

Artwork and cultural venues aside, the fabulous hotel offers a wide range of amenities and services, which ensure the comfort of guests during their stay. The front desk staff is always happy to recommend dining venues, arrange for outings, and organize exciting activities. Completing the expansive service offer is the on-campus Orange Blossom, a restaurant conceptualized by Tatanka Guerrero, which offers a delectable fusion menu combining traditional Old Florida flavors with international dishes to deliver an unforgettable taste. Guests have the option to order room service or enjoy fine dining in the restaurant's unique, artistic flair.

Surrounded by gourmet restaurants, art galleries, entertainment venues and an array of cultural sights and institutions, SBH South Beach Hotel offers a great deal for travelers seeking affordable luxury at one of the most beautiful vacation spots in the world. Attracting business travellers, art aficionados and vacationers alike, the SBH quickly evolved from an insider tip into one of the most desirable destinations in the Sunshine State.
