For starving artists visiting Sweden, not having the finances necessary to stay at a nice hotel is no longer an issue because the Clarion Hotel Stockholm is now accepting artwork as payment! The offbeat initiative is part of the hotel's new art and music focus, whereby the hotel has been making an effort to support and showcase more Nordic artists and musicians through exhibits and events.
Now, the Clarion Hotel Stockholm is inviting artists to stay at its accommodations by paying only with their artwork, which is exchanged for a one-night stay at the hotel for two people. Artistic guests must first book their stay online using the code 'Room for Art' to reserve a room, as well as fill out and submit a form accompanied by his or her artwork. According to its website, the Room for Art offer can be used twice per calendar year, per person.
