At Sage Hospitality, we feel that hotels and restaurants should offer a place for the human spirit to rest and renew. The best hotels and restaurants create an amazing experience for their guests, and by any measure, art is an integral part of creating that experience. Art Consultant Paige Powell, a Portland native and confidante of Pop Art legend Andy Warhol, worked closely with the city’s community to bring together a timeless and captivating collection to be featured throughout our property.
People are multi-dimensional, so their surroundings should be, too. Art, architecture and design allow a hotel to blend the old with the new, the contemporary with the classic, and the comfortable with the exciting. With these creative mediums, one can create a mood and personality for a place that takes it from predictable and commonplace to unexpected and enchanting. Channeling the unique atmosphere of Portland and the surrounding area, the Nines offers a fascinating art collection that is both authentic and memorable. Our guests will be exposed to a variety of pieces that range from Hap Tivey’s Pearl Moon, a curious image depicting the elasticity of light, to Storm Tharp’s portrayal of Clark Gable’s personal narrative with Tie Salesman (Clark Gable). At the Nines, we are particularly excited about the opportunity to engage with our guests in celebrating fine art.
