Art At The Rendon, presents STORIES, an immersive, operatic work that will transform every surface of The Rendon Hotel through a layering of film projection and live performances. Following the successful inaugural event HIDDEN ROOMS presented earlier this summer, Art At The Rendon’s latest production will continue the creative narrative with the building and its colorful history as inspiration.

STORIES will combine film projections and live performances to activate both the exterior and interior of the vacant hotel. The original corner dive bar, Licha’s Bar and Grill, will be reimagined as a 1920’s speakeasy with libations by local distilleries and breweries to match and a host of musicians including local Gypsy Jazz musicians The Vignes Rooftop Revival.
