In curating an art collection for the hotel and common spaces of the private residences at One Dalton, KCFA considered both the international, sophisticated lifestyle of its clientele and the characteristics of its location in the heart of Boston. Ours is a city that supports a global intellectual elite at the forefront of innovation and technology, that celebrates its historic landmarks, that promotes culture be it music, dance, visual art, or theater. In addition to the cultural and intellectual underpinnings of the city, the physical cityscape defines us too. Boston Harbor plays a critical role in everything from our history to our cuisine.

The art collection at One Dalton encompasses a group of internationally important artists who created art (some site-specific) that reflects the beauty and assets of our city. For example, Boston-born Duke Riley's site-specific mosaic depicts the very local story of the Great Molasses Flood of 1919. Yinka Shonibare's Great American Library: Dancers, Musicians and Actors references both the immediate cultural environs of One Dalton and celebrates the richness that immigration brings to a city. The elegant contrails of airplanes across blue skies in LA Exuberance by Tacita Dean reflects the physical architecture of One Dalton. These artists are recognized and admired by our global clientele, as well as inspire a meaningful experience in our city.
