Panepinto Galleries partners with Canopy by Hilton to support the robust culture of the Jersey City Arts District with the area’s first truly elevated hospitality offering, providing a new hub for the fast-growing creative community.
As a tribute to the Arts District, Canopy by Hilton showcases the exceptional work of talented local artists selected by the hotel’s Art Curator, Stefania Panepinto of Panepinto Galleries. The area’s dynamic history and energy shine through the colourful murals by Ricardo Roig and Jenna Morello, who pay homage to the Powerhouse Arts District and industrial Jersey City of the past.
A key feature of the hotel’s art program is a meticulously curated on-going rotating art collection that is infused throughout Canopy Central, with all the artwork for sale. Artists include: Adam Weston, Augusto Fanjul, Benjamin Keating, Candy Le Sueur, Catherine Hart, Cheryl Gross, Elaine Lorenz, Eliana Perez, Glenn Garver, Howard Nathenson, Joe Velez, Megan Maloy, Mr. NYC Subway.

Limited edition silkscreen prints by Gary Lichtenstein inspired by the Dixon Mills Pencil Factory are displayed in all guest rooms, while the corridors are brought to life with original acrylic paintings by Candy Le Sueur and hand-made cyanotype prints as well as industrial photography by Tatsuro Nishimura.
Canopy by Hilton Jersey City Arts District is surrounded by endless restaurants, inspiring galleries, public art projects, and unique shopping offerings. As the Canopy brand’s first property in the New York Metropolitan area, the hotel serves as a gateway to experience Jersey City like a local while offering proximity to New York City.
