The Morrison Hotel Gallery.
By definition, you can’t have an icon without an image. Ergo, we wouldn’t have rock stars if we didn’t have rock and roll photography. Rock photographers created the images that supplemented the music, from a time when “rock photographer” wasn’t exactly a career choice. Those artists – the photographers as well as the musicians – are celebrated at Morrison Hotel Gallery.
Set inside Sunset Marquis’ lobby, across from famed Bar 1200 and above Nightbird full-service recording studios, The Morrison Hotel Gallery exhibits a selection of major fine art photography from an archive of world-class music and sports photographers.
Peter Blachley, a former record company executive, Richard Horowitz, a music industry professional, and Henry Diltz, a legendary music photographer, founded the Morrison Hotel Gallery in 2001 in New York’s SoHo neighborhood. The gallery has since grown to become a major brand in fine art music photography and is respected amongst peers and artists alike.
The Morrison Hotel Gallery located in Sunset Marquis is co-owned by Timothy White, one of the most sought-after celebrity portrait photographers in the field for over twenty years. Today, Timothy also curates the gallery that extends beyond the walls of MHG. Photographs are displayed throughout the 3.5-acre Sunset Marquis, inside the hotel lobby, breezeway, restaurant, and SPA Garden, and all are for sale, so if you see something you like, you can take it home with you. Just don’t forget to, you know, pay for it.
Unique and exciting events will be announced monthly.
