Art Inspired by Chicago’s Unique History Unveiled at Hyatt Centric The Loop Chicago

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.

Celebrating Diversity and Inclusion for All

At Hyatt, we care for people so they can be their best. As such, we support and celebrate diversity and inclusion for all each and every day. It’s what we believe is right.

That’s why we fundamentally oppose legislation that could enable discrimination. We are and will continue to be open to all and for all. I want to reiterate that, as legislative initiatives unfold in the U.S. and elsewhere around the world, we are committed to ensuring that our colleagues and guests feel safe, comfortable and cared for.

Europe Tomorrow: Supporting Social Innovation

Europe Tomorrow logoEurope 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.
