The Collection

Art Inspired by Visionaries

At Sentinel, we celebrate visionaries and how they impact culture and history. We’re inspired by the passion that drives people to innovate – to step forward and make a difference, envisioning a brighter future. From science to music to fashion, and from sport to human rights, Sentinel’s art collection captures the dreamers, designers, makers and doers of our time.

In the guest corridors, you’ll find larger-than-life black-and-white historical photographs featuring those moments – big and small – when sentinels are made. As you explore Sentinel, be inspired by images of a triumphant Dr. Martin Luther King immediately after he delivered his “I Have a Dream” speech at the March on Washington, jazz saxophonist John Coltrane captured during a pensive pause in the recording session for his Blue Train album, and a young Vivienne Westwood, the designer who made punk chic, chatting with Sid Vicious, bassist of the Sex Pistols.

Travel back in time and discover the people who helped shape history – from Enrico Fermi, one of the fathers of the atomic bomb, to Jacques Cousteau, the trailblazing explorer, inventor and conservationist. Or celebrate famous moments in sports, like a self-assured Cassius Clay – the man who will one day become Muhammad Ali – preparing for a fight by taping his mouth and padlocking it shut.

This visionary experience extends into the guest rooms, where you’ll find Pop Art-inspired works featuring sentinels of innovation, music, fashion, sport and human rights such as Steve Jobs, Beethoven, Coco Chanel, Jackie Robinson and Rosa Parks.

Triumphant, inspiring, playful and unexpected, Sentinel highlights moments in time when change was made, and the world shifted as a result.
