New Windsor, NY
About an hour north of the George Washington Bridge, near the mountain that serves as its mega-apocalyptic namesake, Storm King Art Center is dotted with monuments and reminders of virtually every post-WWII name in large-scale, site-specific sculptural work. The landscape’s 500-acres are fittingly dramatic and alive — woodlands and farm fields where structural pieces share quarters with red fox, wild turkey, groundhogs, red-tail hawks, turtles. 
Storm King’s sharing a peek at a pair of their special exhibitions on view this year with the Gallery at Ace Hotel New York this month — Zhang Huan: Evoking Tradition and Outlooks: Virginia Overton — plus free admission to the center for guests.

Tinariwen perform “Chaghaybou” at our last 5 at 5 in the lobby at Ace Hotel New York. We’re exporting the series to the West Coast for the first time tomorrow at 5pm, with a special stripped down set from Lily Kershaw, Upstairs at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.


New York City, Downtown Los Angeles
Last Thursday we had a pair of parties — one for each coast — celebrating bustling group shows in both the Gallery at Ace Hotel New York and Segovia Hall at Ace Hotel Downtown Los Angeles.

First the sun went down on Warm Up PLATFORMS, our show co-presented by MoMA PS1,  with the work of Warm Up stage designers The Principals, Fort Makers and CONFETTISYSTEM. That show’s on display through July 31.

Over on the left coast, our lady loves of Inspired Women of Los Angeles celebrated their first anniversary with First Love — a one-night pop-up show with work from Megan Mcisaac, Nouel Riel, Ash Anthony, Future Eyes and more.

Keep an eye out for future developments in the IWoLA x Ace love affair as it develops.

The Sherman Zwicker first met the Atlantic just after we joined The War — a sailing vessel stop-gap in the transition to diesel power — fishing and trading from Nova Scotia to the Caribbean and back for over a quarter century. The last of his fleet, the SZ is now docked in Tribeca at Hudson River Park’s Pier 25; a 142-foot curio rescued with the help of the not-for-profit Maritime Foundation to become the seasonal oyster bar and maritime exhibit Grand Banks. 

Atelier Ace Director Eric Cheong and Ace familiar Johnne Eschleman left their fastidious fingerprints all over this one, so may God bless ol’ Sherm and all who dine upon him. 
Grand Banks sets figurative sail just in time for Fourth of July weekend.

Chris Tucci — illustrator, animator, universal charmer and hero behind our long standing Sunday Night Live music series in the lobby of Ace Hotel New York — recently finished this bewildering animation for Streets of Laredo. We can’t decide which part we like the most.


Dan Cassaro, a man of many talents and long-time Ace collaborator — you might recognize his work in room 617 or remember his gallery show from a few months back — proposed to his scientist extraordinaire and highly adorable girlfriend Niamh at Ace Hotel New York. 

He wrote a song, recorded it, pressed it on vinyl and played it for the occasion — and even though that sounds really unromantic and boring, she still said yes. 
We’re honored to be a (little) part of their story, and wish them all the best in the world.

Ace New Yorker Natalie Lomeli captured our imagination with her proposal for a mural in room 424 at the hotel — and this is what she created. You have the key to our hearts, Natalie.
