Fallen Tree Exhibitions invites art enthusiasts, artists, collectors, press, curators,
and patrons of culture, to check-in to the third unofficial art fair in San Diego!
Hotels/Motels (Unofficial Art Fair 2017) presents emerging and established artists
who are working in a wide-range of media and disciplines. Artists from all over
San Diego and Los Angeles will transform hotel rooms into galleries, stages, and
project spaces. In addition, to this carefully selected group of visual and
performing artists, Hotels/Motels, will be joined by partnering artist collectives,
contemporary galleries, and cultural organizations. Each of their rooms will
embody a unique life of its own that reflects the design of the artist and curator.

With the launch of Hotels /Motels 2017, we hope to contribute to the revitalization
of San Diego’s burgeoning art scene!

In the spirit of renaissance, the 2017 Hotels/ Motels will return to San Diego,
where the inaugural exposition was held. In 2000, we occupied the Motel 6, and
then surfaced again at the downtown Travelodge in 2003. Before the urban
redevelopment, downtown was a vibrant arts district, comprised of galleries, artist
studios, and art centers. It was an exciting time for the arts and Hotels/ Motels
was a significant addition!

With the launch of Hotels /Motels 2017, we hope to contribute to the revitalization
of San Diego’s burgeoning art scene! This event will generate excitement and
restore demand for contemporary art and culture in San Diego. Fallen Tree
Exhibitions promises to create a stimulating and very intimate exhibition
environment for art lovers, artists, and patrons. Participants will engage in
thought provoking experiences, form meaningful relationships, and create new
opportunities. The checkout time is up to you! Artists, voyeurs, join us, in this
unprecedented, unofficial art fair!
