Events & Attractions
Culture Lives Here: Thompson Atlanta – Buckhead x Hue Designs
We are collaborating with local artist Huelani Mei Foglemen of Hue Designs to create a pop-up sculpture exhibition, inspired by our signature Italian American restaurant, Dirty Rascal. Led by chef Todd Ginsberg, Dirty Rascal’s symbol - a trouble-making spirit of a fox - will be the inspiration for the eight different sculptures throughout the hotel. Foglemen will also be crafting custom, Dirty Rascal-inspired lapel pins for hotel staff, an ice stamp for cocktails, and water bottle charms for VIP guests. The pop-up exhibition will be viewable indefinitely upon the property’s grand opening in December 2021.
