TOP PRIORITY - OUR GUEST: Covid-19 updates and cancellation policies
2020 - ARTIST OF THE YEAR
COVID has broken all records with the speed of its world-wide travel, as well as its resounding impact in every country. A very fluid and adaptable artist who is able to silently penetrate the minds, bodies and souls of millions. Some react to its presence without notice, while many simply die. Unpredictable, mysterious and pervasive, this artist has been like no other we have known (perhaps other than its cousin SARS but no where near as impactful). As much as one has had to admire in a perverse manner this artist of sorts, we do hope it will "leave the building" so other artists can take residence.
For a detailed introduction to The Vagabond Club's permanent pieces, current installations, and resident artist, hotel guests can receive a complimentary art tour upon check-in.
Ask at the Rhino for a complimentary art tour when you stay at the hotel.

"The Vagabond Club (Official Soundtrack)" a project by Chiara Luzzana
A cheesemaker, a biker, a farmer, a model, a prince. They’re not all one person, but they all do have one thing in common—they are Sikhs. Originating nearly 500 years ago, Sikhism is now the world’s fifth largest religion, with many of its 25 million members choosing to express their commitment to their faith and culture by wearing a very recognizable piece of clothing—the turban. But who are these people, where do they live, and for what do they stand? Or, put simply, what makes one a Sikh?
When nine-year-old Zara Garcha asks such a question, her family decides to answer it in a most extraordinary manner—by embarking on an international journey to learn about their heritage from modern day Sikhs. From Italy to India to Great Britain, Argentina, Canada, and the United States, Zara and her family traverse the globe and meet some of the most interesting, generous, and compassionate people on Earth. And in so doing, they remind us that, to fully understand our fellow human beings, we must judge not solely by what is on one’s head, but by what is in one’s heart.
