Art Out & About: Art in the Sky

Events — By Jacy Meyer on February 7, 2011 at 4:59 am

Art and drink lovers should head to the top of the Hilton Prague Hotel this month for the latest installation of their Art in the Sky series. We wrote about their last exhibition in September and recently attended the opening of their newest project featuring Italian sculpture Marco di Piazza.

I’m a bit biased as sculpture is one of my favorite art forms but the work on display here is gorgeous. Piazza’s pieces are light and airy and you can feel the movement of the figures. With names like “Circular Dance” and Figure of Fire” you get the idea of the emotion behind them. There are 11 pieces in total, although not all are displayed in Cloud 9, the hotel’s rooftop cocktail bar, and primary home to the exhibit. There are some large pieces by the front entrance, in the lobby and outside on the hotel’s terrace.

Like last time, Cloud 9’s master bartender created cocktails to accompany the exhibit. The sculptures and their names are inspiration for the drinks, so you can enjoy a “Couple” (vodka, ginger syrup, triple sec and cranberry juice) or an “In That Direction” (Tia Maria, cacao dark and cream.) The “sculpture” cocktails also are specially priced at 130 CZK.

The exhibition runs through February 28.
