The Grafton Hotel keeps making bold moves, sort of the story of the little hotel that could. On December 7th 2008 through (Extended until) December 22nd 2008, they are hosting Hip Hop Art/The World of the Art Ranger (or Art Ranger World), the stunning works of Norwegian madman and creative genius, Ingar Aasen. Plastic Molding and Plastic Paint? What a stunning combination when they are fuesed together in wedded bliss. Tearing down the doors of legitimate credibility to snobbish society types, his works in-fuse deep thought into its' viewers about the unimaginable trials and tribulations undergone by many of Hip Hop's "Originaires" (Octavia, Krs One, Scott La Rock, Afrika Bambaataa and the Soul Sonic Force, Jazzy Jay, RC Van Silk & many other's.). Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you...Ingar Aasen, the Art Ranger.

Chad Thompson, General Manager of the Grafton Hotel, is willing to entertain certain, small exhibitions there. He understands that artist are a special group of sensitive, creative individuals who sometimes need a smaller, more intimate space to engage audiences in their vision.  His hotel has been host to many creative types and have garnered, from the experience, a deep and abiding respect for their works and endeavors. he is a true friend of the arts and as such, he has alerted his staff to the uniqueness of their demeanor and nature.

The Grafton is truly a one of a kind and experiencing their brand of hospitality should be a top priority for any artists on their way up to the pinnacle of their career. is ready to play host to all (creative geniuses) on a mission to share their creations with a respondent audience & have an exhibition experience tucked under their belt. Start building your solid artist career, one staged event at a time. The Grafton, their inspiration is art!
