"From above, the rippled fog layer laps against the shores of the foothills like a voluminous cotton ocean." – Eric Cheng
In our Historic guest rooms and suites, you'll find nationally and internationally recognized contemporary artists working primarily in black and white photography. In each guest lodging, one or two artists are highlighted. Each has worked with Edition 1 Studios to publish an artist monograph to accompany his or her work in the rooms. These monographs comprise the Cavallo Point Portfolio, a collection of 20 books featuring all participating guestroom photographers.
The Contemporary guest rooms and suites also include a number of black and white photographs, but focus on a collection of large-scale color photography. Both the architecture and dramatic landscape provide a perfect setting for more conceptually-based artwork. One artist is featured in each of these guest accommodations.
Guests and visitors are invited to enjoy the fine art collection at Cavallo Point, which includes Imogen Cunningham, Gregory Colbert, Phil Borges and others. In addition, our common areas showcase historic photographs of Fort Baker. Also featured are prized botanical specimens collected by naturalist John Muir, which have been photographed by Stephen Joseph and documented by Bonnie Gisel.
Beautiful, custom-bound books with works from select artists are available at the Mercantile.
