I have some exciting news for you all! Have you ever walked around the Hotel Pattee, taking in all the great works of art on the wall, and wanted to know more about them? Now you can!
I am happy to tell you all that the QR Code Tour is up and running in the Hotel Pattee. This may be a bit of old news to many, since it was up during Art on the Prairie a few weeks ago. I would have told you about it then, but we were busy setting up things here at the office for the event. Still, to those of you who have not heard about it, now you have, and can experience it!
The tour is a great opportunity to learn about some of the art in the Hotel Pattee. All you need is a smart phone, a QR code scanning app, and some free time. To start, simply go to the front desk of the Hotel, there are some more instructions and a map near the Alley Oop statue. From there, you can go to each of the codes in order or just go right to the ones that you are interested in. On each code is usually a picture of the art and a short audio, narrated by John Patrick Perdue, which will give you more information, ranging from why the artist made the piece to the techniques that were used. In all, you can scan about 23 codes. It is a great opportunity to learn more about the art at the Hotel, and about Soumas Court. If you have free time, please take the tour!
