Local artist Reginald Baylor, who works with acrylic on canvas, was named the hotel’s first Resident Artist. In this capacity, he spent a significant amount of his workweek and weekends in the hotel studio working on large-scale, linear paintings, which he sells throughout the country for tens of thousands of dollars.
Reginald Baylor was born November 1966 in Milwaukee, WI. He attended the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh majoring in fine art and art education with an emphasis in sculpture. After college, Reginald relocated to Southern California where he was married to his wife, Jill, and worked for the Laguna Beach Art Museum and Newport Beach Art Museum.
In 1995, Reginald and his wife and two sons moved to Chicago, IL. There he began a career as an owner-operator for Mason Dixon Trucking while continuing to produce original artwork. He returned to the Milwaukee area with his family in 1998 and owns a studio in downtown Milwaukee in the Third Ward – Marshall Building. He is represented by Suzanne Zada of Beverly Hills, CA, and Racquel Chevremont of New York, NY.
