The Tilden Hotel rotating art series shines a light on San Francisco’s spirited creativity and engaging community while directly supporting local artists. To kick off the two-month residency, Tilden Hotel will host a casual welcome reception on Tuesday, August 6 from 5-8 pm in the lobby to honor the artist in what is known as Tilden Tuesday.
The event is a bi-monthly gathering that takes place on the first Tuesday of every other month. Open to all, the night features complimentary elevated bar bites and beverages crafted by The Douglas Room, the hotel’s signature restaurant and bar.
The Tilden Hotel Art Program is supported through the local community and various local organizations including Wildflowers Institute, Hospitality House, the De Marillac Academy and more. With an emphasis on all things local, Tilden Hotel purchases an art piece from each spotlighted artist that is added to the hotel’s growing private collection of local works. 100 percent of proceeds of all art purchased at Tilden Tuesday will go directly to the artists.
Leonardo Nino is a Venezuelan artist from the Andes mountains now living in San Francisco, California. His entire life has revolved around art. In 2015 he moved to San Francisco to study an MFA at the Academy of Art University. His work consists of detailed and intricate, lines and shapes. Since a very young age he has translated his dreams and visions into art. As he says: “It is like immersing myself into the darkness and bringing a small fragment out into the light”. This creative process gives a distinctive look and feel to his work. He makes art with the hope that his work will bring a little spark of light into the soul of who is looking at it.
