Beyond striking modern design, exceptional cuisine and Seabourn’s signature service, Seabourn’s newest vessel, Seabourn Encore, is transfixing guests with a new world-class art collection. Built around the theme of the “journey of cultural exploration,” the artwork crosses many mediums, including hand-made traditional crafts, photography, custom-made sculptures and video art. Hand-selected by design icon Adam D. Tihany and the international emerging art pioneer Tal Danai of ArtLink, the displays were thoughtfully chosen to echo the ship’s journeys.

“Our guests expect the best from Seabourn, and that includes the ship design and artwork,” said Richard Meadows, president of Seabourn. “We’ve worked with Adam and the ArtLink team to bring sophisticated, fresh pieces that will give anyone who travels on Seabourn Encore a reason to wander the ship and appreciate these impressive creations.”

The vast art collection aboard Seabourn Encore allows guests an exclusive opportunity to directly engage with art in an intimate atmosphere. In a rigorous and creative dialogue, Tihany provided his design vision for the ship while the ArtLink team curated art for each of the spaces. ArtLink approached the project with an imperative to create a rich and varied art collection and include an incredibly diverse group of artists in medium, technique and culture; creating an exciting discourse that embraces the sense of voyage and travel that is completely emblematic of the Seabourn brand.

“We have set ourselves for a unique curatorial journey from day one”, says Tal Danai, founder & creative director of ArtLink. “We wanted to capture with art the emotional experiences of travel, the fascination in discovering new worlds and cultures, both those physically visited and those encountered by the discoverer in the soul search, which, when it comes to art, was always the most intriguing aspect of new world discovery”.
“While design gives a space identity, art gives it personality,” noted Tihany. “The art collection on Seabourn Encore is a holistic and intrinsic component of the ship’s design. Where each space flows effortlessly into the next, the selected art creates a sense of personality within each appointed area of the ship. Art is an important element of the design experience, especially in places where guests stay for an extended period of time. Sophisticated travelers expect to engage with their surroundings in an intellectual and meaningful way.”
