HOUSTON, TEXAS – After sustaining major flood damage due to Hurricane Harvey, SpringHill Suites is in the midst of a complete rebuild of their first floor’s lobby, bar, and conference center. Artist Mario Ramos along with students from Lone Star College recently showed their community support by painting “Ode to Texas”, a beautiful Texas-sized mural, on the hotel’s makeshift lobby wall
“This was a great opportunity to give back to the state and city I love very much,” said Ramos. “I had the opportunity to use my talent to bring a little happiness and help the recovery by possibly uplifting spirits, so it was a no-brainer.” A second mural, “Houston United”, was also completed and is on display near the hotel’s back entrance.
This community relationship was formed in part due to the “Art of Local” – a local community art series from SpringHill Suites by Marriott. By showcasing the work of talented local artisans, Art of Local aims to inspire guests to explore each destination through art.
These murals can be viewed at SpringHill Suites Northwest, located at 20303 Chasewood Park Drive, Houston, Texas. SpringHill Suites Northwest is operated by Marriott International Inc., in conjunction with Oldham Goodwin Group, LLC.
