MANILA -- Art in the Park, dubbed as the country's affordable art fair, is celebrating its 15th anniversary this February.
From February 21 to 28, Art in the Park will offer more than 6,000 artworks both by established and up-and-coming Filipino artists.
Just like last year, the event will be held on a virtual platform. New pieces will be uploaded on the Art in the Park website daily until the end of the online fair.
Prices of artworks are still capped at P50,000, with the event to continue to benefit the Museum Foundation of the Philippines and the National Museum of the Philippines.
Art in the Park retains its partnership with Globe Platinum for several events that will run throughout the online fair, such as a tutorial for kids by comic artist and illustrator Jomike Tejido; video features on the art-making process of artists Henrielle Pagkaliwangan and Yvonne Quisumbing; and music on Saturday night from '80s band Overdrive.
The fair's collaboration with Bank of the Philippine Islands, on the other hand, will include a series of mini-documentaries that will highlight the works of pottery pioneers in the Philippines Jon and Tessy Pettyjohn, and Joey de Castro.
