I have really enjoyed keeping up to date on the hotel project through what I consider to be very adequate coverage on your blog lately but I am really surprised that no research has been carried out by your bloggers concerning which hotel chain might be more likely to purchase local, regional or maybe even nationally known artists to display in their lobbies. If not actual buying power, maybe one corporation atleast donates/funds more money to the arts than the other. I would rather have a cardboard filled with really awesome "gifts" than a really cool box filled with packing foam. Is one of the competing chains more likely to foster the much needed percent-for-the-arts programs lacking in Indy?

Just some questions I would like to find answers for.

Percent for art is a different can of worms with plenty of positives and negatives and will be a good topic for an upcoming post.

In regards to art for this specific project, I have heard the city wants some sort of art component but it's unclear how this will manifest itself. If we hear anything, you know where to find the info!!
