Live! by Loews

Arlington, TX Collaborators HKS Highlights "String Pitch", a large scale giclée on canvas with added thread embellishment in Texas Ranger colors Project Scope Public spaces
Located in the heart of Arlington’s entertainment district, Live by Loews – Arlington TX is designed for the sports fanatic looking for luxury Southern hospitality

Home of the Texas Rangers, Arlington’s new Texas Live! District offers premiere dining, entertainment, and accommodations that appeal to sports fans and their guests alike. Offering easy access to the Rangers’ Globe Life Park, the Dallas Cowboys’ AT&T Stadium, and the Esports Stadium Arlington & Expo Center, Live by Loews is a first-class hotel made for a town that runs on sports and Texas pride.

Given the location and history of the area, it’s no wonder that the love of the game served as the main point of inspiration for the hotel art at Live by Lowes. For this property, the hospitality art consultants at Kevin Barry Art Advisory curated a collection of large-scale original art pieces for public spaces across a variety of substrates. Wall coverings featuring deconstructed baseball players in motion invigorate corridors and are attention-grabbing reminders of America’s favorite pastime. These art moments convey a fluidity of movement and action, while also slowing the mechanics of the game down to a granular level that focuses the viewer’s attention on the athleticism and beauty behind baseball.

By bringing elements of the game into Live by Lowes, KBAA’s art selection makes sure that sports aficionados will never feel too far removed from what their stay is all about.

People often think of art and sports as being on opposite sides of the spectrum, maybe even at odds with one another. We’re a team of art specialists but many of us—including me— love sports, too. Having the opportunity to show how one complements and reflects the other was a fun experience, and we look forward to having more opportunities to work on projects like this in the future.
