Recently, an art installation called the Sweet Tooth Hotel opened in Dallas as an experimental art and retail pop up in Dallas for a limited run. As soon as I saw the images, I knew that I had to take a model here! Imagine a world where sweets are larger than life – fantastical desserts and surprises behind every door, Sweet Tooth Hotel brought together work by some of Dallas’s most innovative artists.
Sweet Tooth Hotel is a five room sugar-themed interactive based on popular treats. The black and white checker board bathroom featured a frosted pink donut mirror and pink claw foot tub. There is a southwest room that features cactus whose barbs are made of ring pops and lit in neon. The hallways feature art installations of their own such as black and white stripped floors, and a rainbow/cloud hallway that has clouds that are interactive based on your voice. The bedroom area features a light up wall, bed made of recycled shoe soles and a macaroon light fixture.
Next, you made your way into the kitchen area with extra large boxes of cereal and a surprise behind each cupboard. My absolute favorite feature was the 1990’s phone that lights up and shows all the internal fixtures. As you stand in the kitchen trying to find the next room you might be slightly confused until you open the refrigerator and step into a room that looks like a carnival with fun house mirrors and walls lined with stuffed animals. You can even enter hidden spots inside and pop through the animals.
My model Annie, wore an absolutely perfect black and white romper that accented all the art installations perfectly. Annie’s pink shoes were show stoppers because other patrons couldn’t stop commenting on how amazing her shoes and outfit were. I had so much fun exploring and discovering the Sweet Tooth Hotel with Annie!
Annie and I highly suggest you attend this limited run art pop up and support other local artists. These are the amazing events we want to continue to bring to our home town. Hop over to www.sweettoothhotel.com to grab your tickets before it is too late.
