The roof of the James Hotel is filled with LOVE, one of Laura Kimpton’s monumental word sculpture pieces which were widely photographed at Burning Man. The collection included words like “BELIEVE”, “LIVE”, “EGO”, and “DREAM.” LOVE made its way to New York, landing at Omar’s on West 9th Street, and as luck would have it, to the roof of the James Hotel, where the Freedom Tower is a fitting backdrop to the large brightly colored sculpture piece.

The James Hotel is located at 27 Grand Street in Soho. You can view more of Laura Kimpton’s work beginning May 4th at HG Contemporary on West 23rd Street.
