DEARBORN (WWJ) - In upscale hotels you generally find that those that feature fine art usually keep it contained in a gallery, but visitors to The Henry (formally The Ritz) in Dearborn, will find the hallways and the rooms decorated with the works of artists like Peter Max.

“It’s interesting, today everything is different, you know, 50 years ago it had to be in a gallery, in a museum, today it’s everywhere,” says Max to WWJ’s Pat Sweeting.

Listen to the full interview here:

Park West Gallery is celebrating its 42nd anniversary this weekend with the major Collectors Gala Event held at the Henry. Attendees have a chance to bid on hundreds of works of fine art. They’re also getting a chance to meet and chat with people like world-famous artist Peter Max who has a number of pieces in the auctions. Artists Itzchak Tarkay and David Najar are also attending.

“We’re going to see the art in hotel rooms be beauiful, the art in the hallways be beautful, so kind of exciting for us,” says Park West Gallery CEO Albert Scaglione.

Park West Gallery has also agreed to place part of its collection throughout The Henry in corridors, lobbies and restaurants creating a truly art-themed hotel.
