"Chelsea Hotel Through the Eyes of Photographers" – 125th Anniversary Photography Exhibition of the Chelsea Hotel

The Chelsea Hotel turns 125 this year and to celebrate its anniversary, photographer and Hotel resident Linda Troeller, curated the exhibit, "Chelsea Hotel Through the Eyes of Photographers," collaborating with Hotel Vice President David Elder. The show features work from over sixty photographers shot in and of this iconic Hotel ranging from historic images of residents such as Virgil Thomson, Patti Smith and Dee Dee Ramone to the edgy and atmospheric. “With so much of New York City history vanishing, these photographs testify to the pivotal value of the proliferation of culture generated at an artist-oriented place,” said Ms. Troeller.
The exhibit, in the ballroom of the Hotel, is on view for the May 9th from noon to 6pm and general opening 6-8pm;
May 10th Saturday from noon to 5pm and Sunday May 11th from noon to 5pm.

The Hotel Chelsea, a legendary bastion of creativity, has often stood in the eye of New York City's cultural storm. The ghosts from the Hotel's earlier days saw Arthur Miller hide away to write in a back apartment following his
divorce from Marilyn Monroe; Janis Joplin “talk so brave and sweet” to Leonard Cohen; and Ralph Gibson print his photographs for his first Lustrum photography book in his tiny kitchenette.

The Hotel Chelsea is located at 222 West 23rd Street, between 7th and 8th Avenues, near the E, C, F, and 1 trains.

Press photographs are available and the press may visit the show by appointment before the opening.

Photographers featured in the show are from New York City and around the United States, Finland, Sweden, Spain, Italy, Germany, France, England, Canada, and Mexico.
