SpringHill Suites Celebrates First Anniversary With ArtNight

Thursday, May 16, 2013

The SpringHill Suites Chattanooga Downtown/Cameron Harbor is celebrating its one-year anniversary with ArtNight, a free event open to hotel guests, local residents, business leaders and art lovers alike.

The anniversary celebration will feature paintings from local artist Lindsay McNally, custom pieces from The Green Door Trading Company, plus reproductions of well-known pieces from The Hunter Museum of Art.  

Refreshments will be provided, and edible centerpieces from Romaine On The Go will carry on the art theme.  

The event, from 4-7 p.m., will also feature live entertainment. Free parking will be available.

ArtNight originated in 2010 and was created by the SpringHill Suites brand as a way to highlight the hotel’s element of style through a connection to art and design. The event allows properties to partner with local communities; engage guests, potential customers and locals; and promote SpringHill Suites as a true “space to inspire.” During ArtNight, hotel lobbies, such as the one at this Chattanooga event venue, are transformed into galleries to offer an evening of inspiration.  

Located along the Tennessee River, this hotel’s design features a cool color palette of greens and blues and wave-like elements to create a soothing environment.
