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 (Robert and Megan Lange of Robert Lange Studios) to create the next exhibit. In addition, all corridors and our Gallery Rooms also feature a collection of original art.
But we just don’t display art. The Vendue is also home to Charleston’s only Artist in Residence Program. Our fully functional artist studio is found just off the lobby of 26 Vendue. Guests and visitors alike are invited and encourage to stop by the studio and meet our resident artist. 26 Vendue also features a gallery that serves as a beautifully restored private event room and features rotating art displays throughout the year.
We also offer a full-time art docent that provides daily tours and is available to answer any questions about the exhibit or our art program. Our docents are also able to assist with purchases should you wish to acquire any piece within our collection.
