The Hay-Adams Introduces Adult Coloring Book

From our friends at the The Hay-Adams Hotel...

The Hay-Adams Introduces the Perfect Stress Reliever In-Room Amenity, an Adult Coloring Book Created by Pulitzer Prize Winner Matt Wuerker

The Hay-Adams is pleased to introduce a complimentary new pocket-size coloring book, commissioned exclusively for the hotel and created by Pulitzer Prize cartoonist Matt Wuerker. Almost a year in the making, the 13-page book sports drawings of 11 iconic monuments in the nation’s capital along with some more intimate settings in and around the landmark Hay-Adams, situated steps from the White House. The art book has an accompanying set of six color pencils that are also an idea travel size in their carrying box. So, when days are long and nights sleepless in this power city, this new amenity affords some relaxing fun for doodling and staying within Wuerker’s carefully drawn sketches.

Wuerker’s work can also be seen in the hotel’s famous watering hole, Off The Record, as he was one of the artists commissioned to create some of the collectible political drink coasters. There is also an impressive collection of political cartoons and character sketches of Washington’s newsmakers on display in Off The Record. The entire collection featured here contains works by award-winning illustrator Richard Thompson and cartoonists Matt Wuerker, Ann Telnaes, Mike Jenkins and Kevin “KAL” Kallaugher.
