Art At The U is an initiative to support and encourage local emerging Malaysian artists through an annual open art competition in Penang. For two weeks a year, the hotel will turn its hallways into canvases where artists are given the creative license to expand their visions inside the hotel through drawing, painting, collage and installations.
Six winners will be announced within two categories: Wall Art, and Murals, with a total prize money of RM 32,000 to be won.
U Hotel Penang opened from 15th February 2015.
The competition is open to creative individuals within Malaysia of any age who do not currently have gallery representation.
