The New Rockaway Hotel’s Robust Art Program

By Lola Desmole

May 28, 2020

Although the time might not be for travel at the moment, the anticipated summer launch of The Rockaway Hotel is still a go. Located in Rockaway Beach in New York, the new hotel is putting an emphasis on supporting visual arts by showcasing local works, making it an urban beach getaway for surfers and cultural enthusiasts alike.

“The hotel will serve as an anchor for the Rockaway Beach community-a gathering place for locals and an opportunity to bring Rockaway Beach’s surf, art, and music scene to guests through cultural experiences,” says Michi Jigarjian, Partner and Chief Social Impact Officer at The Rockaway Hotel. “Community engagement is one of our key pillars and we’re delighted to showcase local artists, designers, and filmmakers through rotating exhibits, events, and programming.”

Jigarjian set out to cultivate a space that is as artistically inspired as it is accommodating. It will feature local and international, emerging and established artists in an ongoing rotation of carefully curated contemporary art. The goal is to support artists, which is particularly important right now, while fostering a greater sense of community.

The hotel will also host year-round programming featuring artists, designers, and filmmakers from Rockaway Beach and beyond, bringing in live entertainment, festivals, public art, and more.
