THE WESTIN VERASA, Napa
Chandra Cerrito / Art Advisors was selected to commission and install over 930 artworks and accessories for guest rooms and public spaces at The Westin Verasa Napa, a new hotel blending downtown convenience with a resort-like setting on the Napa River. Working alongside the building’s architect and designer, the goal was to present artworks that would compliment the Westin brand and celebrate the natural surroundings of the Napa Valley.
The art collection at The Westin Verasa Napa features some of the extraordinary artistic talent of the region and the nation. Most of the artists represented are from Napa, San Francisco, the East Bay and Marin, all of which surround the San Francisco Bay.
Some have developed their work over more than two decades, and are widely respected and collected nationally. Others are promising younger artists who have already enjoyed substantial success and recognition.
The wide range of media represented includes photography , painting, sculpture, unique prints, custom limited edition prints and tapestries.
This collection is the result of a true collaboration among the hotel owners, artists, building architects, designers and contractors. It was the vision of Intrawest Placemaking and Starwood Hotels & Resorts to create a sophisticated art program that would complement the hotel’s intent to provide what the Napa Valley fosters—a deep appreciation of nature, sensory connection and rejuvenation of spirit.
