The Story

Working with the project design team, NINE dot ARTS created a sartorial-inspired art collection at the JW Marriott Minneapolis Mall of America. The artworks visually tie to fashion’s variety of colors, textures and lines in creative and sophisticated ways. The unexpected use of materials–metallic paper, thread, powder-coated aluminum, wire, polystyrene and vintage Hermés scarves, among others–throughout the collection provides viewers with distinct moments of discovery, reflection and intrigue throughout the space. The collection features work from emerging and established local Minnesota artists in addition to those across the continental United States and even Chile, Germany and the United Kingdom. The art elevates the hotel’s luxe experience through its complex and unique take on fashion.


“The development of the art collection was a very thoughtful and meticulously planned process in keeping with JW Marriott brand’s goal to cultivate enriching experiences that deepen and shape our guests’ journeys through life.”  Amy Shahin, JW Marriott Mall of America Director of Sales
