The AAA Four-Diamond Pfister® Hotel in Search of its Next Artist in Residence

Hotel Celebrates 10th Artist in 2018

Milwaukee, Wis., November 29, 2017 – The AAA Four-Diamond Pfister Hotel, owned and managed by Marcus Hotels & Resorts, is in search of its next Artist in Residence. Entering its 10th year, The Pfister Hotel’s internationally recognized Artist-in-Residence program is an opportunity for an artist to be at the forefront of Milwaukee’s art scene, showcasing his or her work in a studio gallery on the first floor of Milwaukee’s most prestigious hotel.

The Pfister’s Artist-in-Residence program allows local artists to share their work and interact with guests one-on-one in the studio gallery or at art receptions, gallery nights, classes and events hosted by the resident artist. The next artist, succeeding tintype photographer Margaret Muza, will move into the studio space April 1, 2018, and will continue working at the hotel for a one-year period.

Each year, a committee of influential art enthusiasts from throughout the Milwaukee community selects The Pfister’s resident artist from a pool of highly qualified candidates. The committee takes into account the artist’s vision for the gallery space, his or her body of work, artistic process, personality and a public vote. The selected artist works in The Pfister Hotel’s art studio and gallery that is open to hotel guests and the public. The program encourages visitors to interact with the artist, while watching the evolution of each piece of work firsthand.

“This coming year marks a special milestone as we welcome our 10th resident artist,” said Tim Smith, general manager of The Pfister Hotel. “The Pfister’s Artist-in-Residence program has touched hundreds of guests and residents over the years as we provide a one-of-a-kind, engaging experience that allows visitors to learn about new art forms and interact with our artist in a creative studio environment. Since our first artist was selected in 2009, our program has become nationally and internationally recognized, earning recognition from The New York Times, Globe and Mail and other top-tier publications. We are proud to have hosted a diverse group of talented artists including painters, fiber artists and photographers, and remember them by their legacy pieces that adorn the Pfister hallways. Each artist has had a role in our success and we are excited to welcome the next Artist in Residence who will make this year even more special.”

Margaret Muza, current resident artist, said the Artist-in-Residence program has given her a deeper perspective about herself as an artist and her photography. “Working in the historic Pfister Hotel has provided me with a great atmosphere to use my unique artform. From the gorgeous architecture of this timeless Milwaukee treasure to the hotel guests and staff I interact with, I’ve learned so much. This opportunity has allowed me to grow as an artist as I share the process of tintype photography with others.”

The deadline to apply for the program is December 14, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. CT. Interested artists can download the application online at http://www.thepfisterhotel.com/artist-in-residence.

In the years since its inception in 2009, The Pfister’s Artist-in-Residence program has been critically lauded as not only a pioneering Wisconsin Artist-in-Residence program, but as an example of a hotel taking its dedication to the local community above and beyond traditional expectations. With a deep appreciation and connection to the arts, launching an Artist-in-Residence program was a natural step for The Pfister Hotel, and in the years since, each artist that has held the residency has helped to grow and evolve the program to its current incarnation today. Marcus Hotels & Resorts has introduced similar Artist-in-Residence programs at additional owned proprieties including The Skirvin Hilton Hotel in Oklahoma City, Okla. and The Lincoln Marriott Cornhusker Hotel in Lincoln, Neb.

About The Pfister Hotel
The Pfister Hotel has been the premier hotel in downtown Milwaukee for over 120 years. Originally built in 1893 by businessman Guido Pfister, it was the most lavish hotel of its time. The hotel’s storied elegance had faded following World War II, until 1962, when Ben Marcus, founder of The Marcus Corporation, purchased this grand hotel out of bankruptcy. The Marcus family renovated and restored the hotel to its original glory, adding convention facilities, a parking garage and 23-story guest tower. The Pfister Hotel remains home to the largest collection of Victorian art of any hotel in the world, and offers an interactive augmented reality tour of pieces in this impressive collection.
Today the Pfister Hotel continues its tradition of gracious service and impeccable style, and has been recognized for 41 consecutive years by AAA as a Four-Diamond property. In 2017, The Pfister Hotel was ranked the No. 1 Best Milwaukee Hotel by U.S. News & World Report and was recognized as a Top Hotel in the Midwest in Condé Nast Traveler’s 30th annual Reader’s Choice Awards. This exceptional property is a member of two prestigious hotel organizations, Historic Hotels of America and Preferred Hotels & Resorts. The Pfister Hotel is located at 424 E. Wisconsin Ave. in downtown Milwaukee. For more information, please visit www.thepfisterhotel.com and follow the hotel on Facebook and Twitter (@PfisterHotel).

Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District Now Open

Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District
The 333-Room, Full-Service Hotel, A Major Anchor of Omaha’s New Capitol District

Marcus® Hotels & Resorts, a division of The Marcus Corporation (NYSE: MCS), and Marriott Hotels announced today the official opening of the Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District in Omaha, Neb. The 333-room, 12-story hotel is the first new full-service premium hotel to open in Omaha in more than a decade. It also serves as a major anchor of the Capitol District, an upscale urban destination dining and entertainment district located in the heart of downtown Omaha. Marcus Hotels & Resorts is a minority investor in the property and is managing the new hotel.

“We are thrilled to officially welcome guests to the Omaha Marriott Downtown located in the city’s first entertainment district, the Capitol District. Led by General Manager Steve Hilton, the hotel team has spent countless hours over the past year ensuring that the Omaha Marriott Downtown is an exceptional place to stay, meet, relax, dine and celebrate,” said Joseph Khairallah, president and chief operating officer of Marcus Hotels & Resorts. “The Omaha Marriott Downtown serves as a social hub for visitors and guests alike and will be the ideal venue for meetings, conventions, special events, weddings, galas and corporate gatherings. We are delighted to be a part of Omaha’s exciting new development and look forward to providing a uniquely sophisticated and urban experience for years to come.”

The iconic new Omaha Marriott Downtown at the Capitol District was designed by internationally renowned architecture firm LEO A DALY and was built by construction firm JE Dunn. Winged corners on the south side of the building enable breathtaking 270-degree views of downtown Omaha’s skyline. Materials, such as brick and iron, are used throughout the property to convey a warehouse style inspired by Omaha’s Old Market neighborhood. Wood paneling hints at Omaha’s roots but is tailored with modern details in keeping with Marriott’s midcentury-modern-inspired aesthetic.

On the ground floor, the Omaha Marriott Downtown’s Greatroom lobby area is welcoming and open. Large windows and high ceilings provide views to the CenturyLink Arena & Convention Center to the east, and the city skyline to the west. As the stylish hub of the hotel for social gatherings both day and night, the lobby is the place to see and be seen, and provides the ideal space for guests to relax, collaborate with colleagues or end the night with a refreshing cocktail.

Dining at the Omaha Marriot Downtown
In addition to the welcoming, social atmosphere of the lobby, the Omaha Marriott Downtown’s ground floor features a full-service dining restaurant, Society 1854, and bar, Burdock + Bitters.

Society 1854, named for the year Omaha was founded, offers a regionally inspired menu created by executive chef Brent Hockenberry that features handcrafted recipes focusing on “all things local.” The menu includes familiar American cuisine with a unique, creative flair. Omaha’s newest bar and lounge, Burdock + Bitters, offers an array of spirits and cocktails including an international collection of whiskey, select beer and wine and delectable small plates. Named for two prominent ingredients in the classic American drink, The Old Fashioned, Burdock + Bitters is the perfect setting for after work happy hours, unwinding after a day of meetings or a fun night on the town.

Redesigned Marriott

The luxurious guest rooms are complimented by the additional amenities found throughout the property, such as a rooftop pool with a bar and entertainment area, outdoor event areas and more than 17,000 square feet of flexible meeting space, including an 11,000 square-foot ballroom, one of the largest in Omaha. The Omaha Marriott Downtown’s “Next Gen” meeting space is customizable for every group. The meeting spaces include a flexible set up, the ability to adapt to a variety of formats and group sizes with pivoting walls, moveable partitions, soft seating and modular furniture to ensure every team’s meeting space is perfectly suited to their needs. Ideas are easily captured with tools, such as rewritable surfaces, magnetic panels and shared-screen technology.

We are excited to open our doors and be a part of this vibrant and growing city,” said Steve Hilton, general manager of the Omaha Marriott Downtown.
