Artwork in Public Spaces
The single vision of our muse and grande dame, Adelaide Harcourt, guides Perry Lane’s art program. Inspired by the hotel’s design, the art collection — eclectic, worldly, idiosyncratic and brimming with sophistication, wit and intrigue — seems amassed over a lifetime. The combination of family heirlooms, travel mementos and contemporary art imbues the hotel with a richly textured, fully-lived life.
Adelaide, the descendant of a long line of financiers with a penchant for collecting, has lived most of her life in Savannah, yet traveled the globe from New York to Paris to Istanbul. A former modern dancer, she is passionate about literature and visual art. Her genuine warmth and hospitality make everyone, especially artists, feel at home.
