Cracking Art

A signature at all 21c Museum Hotels, a flock of these limited edition sculptures by artist collective Cracking Art is on permanent exhibition around each property. The mission of Cracking Art is to raise awareness of environmental issues and the use and misuse of natural resources by creating artworks with materials derived from petroleum products. The name Cracking Art refers to the chemical reaction that occurs when converting raw crude oil into plastic, or the moment when natural becomes artificial. Founded in 1993, Cracking Art has created over 600 exhibitions worldwide.
