Art in the Park bird turned into sculptures for the fair’s 2017 edition
This year's Art in the Park will feature 57 galleries, art collectives, independent art spaces, and student groups—a big leap from 12 art galleries in its inaugural outing in 2006.
In addition to the white booths teeming with artworks, Art in the Park has partnered this year with Secret Fresh to create a resin sculpture of the fair's iconic logo. The resin birds will be customized by different artist, rendering each piece unique.
The limited edition sculptures will be sold at Art in the Park on April 2 at the Museum Foundation of the Philippines booth. Prints by Mark Justiniani ("Kumpas") will also be sold in the booth. The sales fund the projects and programs of the National Museum of the Philippines and its network.
Bringing art closer to the public, the fair will also feature an installation by Carzen Esprela: "Bag in a Boat" has a headless figure sitting in a 14-feet long boat with arms for oars—a perfect conversation piece while enjoying the music of featured band Brat Pack.
Mark your calendars and enjoy a day of art on April 2 at Jaime Velasquez Park, Leviste corner Tordesillas Street, Salcedo Village, Makati City. The fair runs from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. — GMA News
