Celebrity Cruises Art Collection III

Here are some of the 2D pieces
This piece was one of my favorites, and requires a close look
because it is so uniquely made of paper
You can see how it was made in this close up below

Here is one of two fiber pieces I found
You can get a better idea of the use of fiber in this close up

This woven piece was in the theatre

This is another one of my favorites

This was the piece in our stateroom

Celebrity Cruise Contempary Art Collection II

Here are some of the 3D peices
You can read a little about the collection here

 Sometimes the pieces had a tag, and other times they did not
If they had a tag, I took a picture of it
 These are made of paper

 These two were by the pools

Celebrity Cruise Contemporary Art Collection

I just got back from a Celebrity cruise with my whole family for my mom's 75th birthday.
One thing that surprised me was the large collection of art on the ship.
It turns out that Celebrity has one of the world’s largest collections of contemporary art
with over 14,000 pieces in their collection.
You can learn more about their collection in this short video.

These bustes exotiques were a main feature in between floors in the central staircase.
They are by artist Liza Lou

If you take a Celebrity Solstice cruise you can borrow an iPad and take a tour of pieces in their collection.
