Sustainable Art at Hotel Felix

We’re proud to be the home of three sustainable art sculptures outside our hotel that greet guests and Chicagoans alike as they walk by.

Loren, the ever-popular 7-foot, interactive “Doorman” and Madeline, Loren’s 8-foot love and “Green Queen.”

We started with Loren in 2010 as our first larger-than-life art sculpture.  Then, in 2011 on Earth Day, we added Madeline, who joined Loren and they have been a popular couple ever since.

In 2012, we added Scrappy, the four-legged eco-friendly pup as well.
