The Langham, Chicago has recently started selling art from the hotel’s second floor. The artists, Hedrich Blessing, a renowned Chicago architectural photographer, and Julian Opie, a world-famous British visual artist, both have art for sale at Flavours of Langham.

The two artists are featured throughout the hotel, with photos by Blessing found in the guest rooms and corridors and Opie’s digital prints hanging in the hotel’s Travelle restaurant.

Blessing’s photographs feature subjects such as Miles van der Rohe, May Residence, Field Buidling, Willis Tower, Marina City and Federal Court. His more recent collection includes prints of Orchestra Hall, Crown Fountain and Farnsworth House. Opie’s gift items come direct from London and are only sold in Chicago. Flavours of Langham features his series of six Walking in the City figures, as well as coffee mugs, Dancing Figures Lenticular Bookmarks and Walking Figures Lenticular Bookmarks.
