Art Exhibits at The Vendue
The Vendue is the first and only hotel in Charleston dedicated to the arts – in all forms. Our goal is to inspire guests through our robust art program. The hotel’s public areas feature 2-3 different exhibits per year. At the end of each exhibit, the current art is removed and the hotel becomes a “blank canvas” for our curators to create the next exhibit. In addition, all corridors and our Gallery Rooms also feature a collection of original art.
Cats versus Dogs
October 2017 - April 2018
“Cats vs Dogs” features 40 artists from around the world, which have each created one piece that is dominated by the theme “cat” or “dog” based on whether they identify as a “cat person” or a “dog person” in a tongue-in-cheek competition to finally determine the better species.
Artist in Residence
We are pleased to announce that The Vendue is the first hotel in Charleston to feature an Artist in Residence program. Fred Jamar is the second artist to utilize our working studio located in the lobby area of 26 Vendue.Learn More
