Did you know that Chicago Blues music started at the world famous Maxwell Street Market? … Me neither.
That’s just one of the reasons why the artwork of renowned Chicago artist Francine Turk at Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago is so cool. The two original pieces by Francine are, like much of the hotel’s décor, inspired by Chicago’s unique history.
“Sunday Blues,” the larger of the two paintings, measures more than 13 feet by seven feet and is a vibrant abstract inspired by the spirit of the Maxwell Street Market, which is often celebrated as the birthplace of Chicago Blues music and a melting pot of cultures.
“1956,” the seven-foot square painting, names several of those famous musicians including Francine’s personal favorite, Buddy Guy. The painting also gives a nod to Chess Records, the Chicago record label that was home to many of these musicians.
The Hyatt Centric brand is designed to leave guests inspired to go out and explore. Francine’s paintings do exactly this – after seeing them, it’ll be hard not to want to explore where the Maxwell Street Market used to be and visit Chess Records (Michigan Ave and 21st street).
Next time you’re in Chicago, make sure to check out these painting at the soon-to-open Hyatt Centric the Loop Chicago.Read More Share +

Europe Tomorrow, a social innovation project, has now embarked on their tour across Europe to promote social change. We were thrilled to host the project’s launch party last month at Hyatt Regency Paris Étoile. The evening was a great success and provided the initiative’s founders – Boris Marcel, Florian Guillaume and Malo Richard – with the opportunity to describe their shared ambition for the three-year initiative.
The three French entrepreneurs’ goal is to discover and share the best social innovation projects that exist in Europe in order to educate young people and opinion leaders on the social and environmental conditions in Europe. Over the course of the upcoming months, Boris, Florian and Malo will be visiting 21 countries to host over 50 events, collaborating with more than 250 partners from large corporates to business schools and ministries. The events will act as an opportunity for Europe Tomorrow to meet with various social entrepreneurs in a bid to identify interesting social initiatives that could improve everyday life across the likes of housing, energy, mobility, and health.Read More Share +
