Playland Motel is a Clocktower curatorial partner, co-producing and co-presenting visual arts, performance, and music projects. Playland Motel is a lifestyle brand with emphasis on collaboration, restoration and sustainability. This direction is demonstrated in the room restoration. The team have restored the bones of this early 19th Century building using materials of its age including reclaimed Virginian barn wood and local reclaimed Church materials. Playland has engaged 12 prominent designers and artists to curate individual rooms in their own aesthetic. This innovative idea has drawn talent from internationally known local artist Pat Conlon, to rising New York artist Fede Saenz. Each season, inspiring artists and designers will be given the opportunity to work on a room for the new upcoming seasons. Music is central to the Playland experience. Imagine the perfect summer mix tape compiled by some of the world’s best musical talent. DJs and live acts will weave a unique mix of balearic disco, surf rock, and cutting edge laid-back electronic music. Original programming curated with some of NYC’s best indie labels will be showcased throughout the summer. Music content will feature prominently on the Playland website and social media platforms via live performance streams and a curated music blog.more
