From Asheville to Budapest

In the “36 Hours in Budapest” article in the travel section of last Sunday’s New York Times (August 12, 2007), I found a surprise reference to a talented Tar Heel. It seems that one of the chic new hotels on the banks of the Danube contains the work of Donald Sultan, who is Asheville born and a UNC-Chapel Hill alum (Class of 1973). The Art’otel’s website touts not just the presence of Sultan’s artworks but also his contribution to the style of the hotel. The Art’otel is now on my list of places to visit when I am in Budapest next spring. Perhaps if the works of more Tar Heel artists pop up in this lovely old city, I can call my trip work-related!
