NEW YORK - Art enthusiasts had an opportunity to embrace mediocrity as budget hotel chain Super 8 held a gallery show to display art from its rooms around the country.

Super 8 has been actively remodeling and modernizing the interior design of its room throughout the United States, and as a result, they have quite the collection of generic landscape paintings to show off.

Earlier this week, Super 8 placed those paintings on the walls of a Manhattan art gallery in a show called “When The Art Comes Down: Works from the Super 8 Collection.” The paintings include horrible watercolors, hunting landscapes and “tepid still-lifes.” The “not-so-super” artworks were given out for free to art enthusiasts who desired to make their apartment look more like a vintage Super 8 room.

During the remodeling process, the hotel chain has remodeled more than 1,800 rooms to feature much more modern black-and-white and sepia-toned images of landmarks and scenery local to the franchise location. Super 8 says some of the art on display at the show has been on display for close to 40 years.
