Art is an undeniable focal point of The Joule experience. Enter through the Main Street doors to see the mid-century mosaics or the Commerce Street lobby where you are greeted by Roger Hiorns’ crystal-covered engine. Thought-provoking, carefully curated artwork surrounds you throughout the hotel’s public and private spaces.
The mosaics tell a slightly different story about art at The Joule, one with twists and turns of near destruction and an investment in preservation. More than 70 mosaics by California artist Millard Sheets were salvaged by hotel founder Tim Headington from a downtown construction project that would have otherwise resulted in their demise. Small and large-scale pieces will remain a constant in the ever-changing collection at The Joule.
