Commitment to the Art World Echoes Luxury Lifestyle in The Ritz-Carlton Residences Chicago

The Ritz-Carlton Residences has all of the tenets of luxury living under the Ritz-Carlton name–the five-star staff, state-of-the-art amenities, world-class services, plus a coveted downtown location. Understanding that a Chicago condo is more than a building where people live, the Ritz-Carlton Residences incorporates the individual interests and needs of its residents, from the need for culture, to spa services, to fine dining from the on-site chef. Every detail in today’s modern world has been considered, just like in the finest five-star hotel.
One way that the Ritz-Carlton Residences take this lifestyle a step further is with a devoted connection to the art world that is seen throughout different parts of the building. It’s clear that this building understood the interests of many of its residents when developing ways for them to incorporate art into the Ritz-Carlton lifestyle.
For one, the units themselves are ideal for art aficionados or residents with their own art collections. With high ceilings (up to 12 feet in some units), the wall space in these Chicago condos is perfect for an owner’s art collection that includes large pieces to display.
Last month The Ritz-Carlton Residences also held Simply Magnificent: A Showcase of Homes, which benefited the Auxiliary Board of the Art Institute of Chicago. That even gave guests an opportunity to see the five luxury units that were transformed by today’s leading designers. The event was a great partnership between the two, exemplifying an interest in design and art both for individuals and the greater community.
And finally, in creating a building that would really speak to its residents, with the addition of a private art collection exclusively found in The Ritz-Carlton Residences. Curated to amplify the “urban oasis” experience of The Ritz-Carlton’s exclusive Landmark Club, these pieces were carefully chosen to represent the different aspects of city life, documenting people, places, nature and art history. The diversity of styles reflects the trend of inclusiveness within contemporary art today, with each original piece revealing its roots in a traditional genre or process, from Landscape paintings to figurative drawings, to textile applique. The collection includes work from internationally-renowned artists such as Brazilian-born artist Vik Muniz, graphite artist Matthew Woodward, designer Nick Cave and painter Cristina Silvestri.
This devotion to the art world is a unique tie for a Chicago condo building, and illustrative of the exceptional lifestyle that comes with being a resident at The Ritz-Carlton Residences. Whether you have your own art collection or simply want access to art culture right outside your front door, this building certainly embraces the art community in Chicago and beyond.
