Briar Barn Inn Artwork Spotlight
Briar Barn Inn is filled with local artwork property-wide, both in common areas and our guest rooms curated by Electric Iris Design. They recently publish the booklet, “Noteworthy Works from the Collections of Briar Barn Inn”, to provide details of the art décor.
From the booklet: “The artwork located within Briar Barn Inn reflects a contiguous relationship of both modern and classic works such as the contemporary work of Claes Oldenberg and romantic landscapes of the of the 19th C. Hundson River School. Highlighting this contrast reinforces the complimentary relationships they have.”
