A Saturday Afternoon Like No Other

About Art in the Park

Originally envisioned as a way to introduce wider audiences to Philippine contemporary art by providing them a wide range of affordable art in a relaxed setting, Art In The Park  has become much more than that.  It is a community-based activity that people come to enjoy, peruse the stalls, and hunt for bargains. They end up lingering because of the convivial atmosphere, the food, drinks, conversations, and the friends that gather.
The main attraction of the fair remains the art. Where else can one see more than forty galleries offering art for no more than P30,000? There is something for everyone: illustrations, paintings, drawings, art for children, as well as collectible toys for the young at heart.  There are wonderful still lifes and landscapes, sculpture and photography, and some of the most cutting-edge ventures into contemporary art. Artfully repurposed furniture, pottery and  jewelery are available to those who like being surrounded by art. The galleries are there for those who wish to buy and browse and art installations in strategic locations for those who simply wish to spend a nice afternoon in a park.
