Art in the park.

I have recently been to an art fair called Art in the Park that took place in Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village, Makati City, Ph. last April 2, 2017 (okay, maybe not so recent.) This is quite near my place and I happened to pass across a banner that indicated this event.

Since 2006, Art in the Park has gathered together a diverse group of galleries, art schools, independent art spaces, and collectives for the country's most significant affordable art fair. An annual event organized by Philippine Art Events, Inc. for the benefit of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines in it's mission to create awareness for the National Museum and its network.

My mom and I decided to go around 5 in the afternoon after I did some research about it and found that it was open until 10 pm. 

Photos are blurry because they were only taken by my phone :(


The first stop was this sort of boat. I got really fascinated looking at this because it had hands under and a headless body as its passenger. I mean, why not? The first thought that came to my mind about its message was that in order to move, we need to experience some hardships and develop teamwork. Even without eyes, when the destination is in our hearts, we would be able to get there. Or something like that. What do you guys think?





This was one of my favorites. Especially the hanging fish. With the help of the breeze , it moved around and it really looked like it was swimming!



Not only do they have those, but as expected, there were paintings as well. Almost all kinds of art were included in the fair. Prints, photographs, sculptures, new medias, and paintings.



They also sell in affordable prices, PhP 50,000 (about $1000) and below.


We actually wondered how this would last till late at night, because obviously, the place would be really dark by then. Turns out, our worries were for nothing. They had a lot of lights hanging around that gave the place a pretty ambiance. The fairy lights were cute and matched the place too.



They also had a number of food stands and gave out free cocktails. 


Eventually, we got tired and got Chillz from a nearby Mini Stop and returned back to sit down on one of the benches the park offered.


Although we weren't able to purchase any artwork, it was a fun experience to look and appreciate the exhibits. We will definitely come back here again next year.
