Where Art Thou: Art in the Park

Summer in Manila is no joke. You’d rather stay inside the house on a Sunday afternoon than go outdoors. The heat was making me choose whether I’d stay in my room and do another series marathon or go out walking under the sun and visit Art in the Park. But, of course, for the love of art, I found myself finally joining the huge crowd… which I didn’t really expect to be as huge considering the heat because, wow, Manila summer and global warming.

Art in the Park

In its 10th year anniversary, Art in The Park featured 60 different galleries, collectives, and groups. Live art and hundreds of canvases, furnitures, and art in different forms — paint, ceramic pottery, wheels and wires, threads, coffee, and a whole lot more that were on sale.

Even the cotton candy sold by Kuya were made like art. Check out this unicorn cotton candy in the making!  😛

For an art collector, this was the ultimate art heaven because everything was tagged at an affordable price. For all of us who love art, it was a feast for the eyes! In case you missed it, don’t worry because Art in the Park will be back next year. Meanwhile, here are some of the photos from this year’s event. 😉
