The Umstead Hotel and Spa's private collection was carefully curated, and features the works of renowned local and national artists, including famed glass artist Dale Chihuly. A dedicated art gallery which changes seasonally allows The Umstead to rotate new artists' work into the hotel to complement the permanent collection. The pieces featured in the collection are modern and minimalist, adding to the contemporary, clean design of the hotel.
Guests are invited to take self-guided tours of the hotel's collection with the aide of an art brochure that is available at the concierge desk.

The Umstead is delighted to welcome back artist Lynn Boggess to the Art Gallery with his newest collection "Stillness." By approaching painting as a "recording of experience," Boggess creates his landscapes by stepping out of himself and into nature. "Frequent walks lead us to settings where our senses merge with an understanding of the world - places where a particular moment intersects with a frame of mind."
Viewing The Umstead Art Collection is complimentary and open to the public. Lynn Boggess' work will be available for purchase in The Umstead Gift Shop March 1, 2017 through June 30, 2017.
