Yes, just after the monumental arts & culture events that were 10 Days Of Art and Art Fair Philippines 2019 last February, here we are again with another arts and culture event in the City That Makes It All Happen. (So, yes, Dear Makatizen, look no further than our very own city for arts-related events!)
Soon it will be time for the most casual and most affordable art fair once again! This year, play with bubbles, find hidden treasures, and explore new art at Art in the Park 2019 in Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village, Makati on March 17 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m.
A fundraising event, Art in the Park donates a portion of all sales to the Museum Foundation of the Philippines. Everything is under Php 50,000 from the 56 exhibitors of galleries, art collectives, independent art spaces, and student groups!
As popular as the artworks are the food tents offering sweet, savory, and nourishing food pics including dishes by Chef Justin Golangco (Bucky’s in Poblacion and SideChick in The Alley). Jazz trio Soulful Mood and Bleu Rascals will also be performing mellow tunes throughout the fair.
For 13 years, Art in the Park has showcased a wide range of artworks that will surely appeal to a broad array of tastes and styles. This year will feature artists such as Zean Cabangis, Yeo Kaa, Leeroy New, and Oscar Mejia.
Yeo Kaa will be presenting a 20-foot inflated art installation from her Alone but not Lonely series. She is best known for her candy-colored stylized figuration and child-like characters.
Filipino Artisan Perfumer Oscar Mejia‘s scent installation will be spraying perfume-filled bubbles all day. The fresh scents hope to bring back memories and get in touch with yourself as you come into the fair.
Intrigued yet? As a popular annual event, collectors from around the metro will be flocking this year’s Art in the Park at the Jaime Velasquez Park, Salcedo Village, Makati on March 17 from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. for free entrance.
