Art in The Park 2015: The Most Accessible Art Fair in the Metro

One of the highlights of the summer has always been Art in the Park. Once a year (this year on March 22), the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village brings the art makers, art aficionados, and art enthusiasts of all ages together for what is quite possibly the most accessible art fair in the Metro.

The one day, cannot miss, art fair, however, ditches the pretense that most would associate with a discriminating art scene, if only for a day. All day, you can find cool art, unusual art, but always truly Filipino Art, all of which is ripe for the picking. Name your medium, and it has, in all likelihood, been featured at Art in the Park. To date, the following have been spotted at the park: traditional and large format acrylic painting, scrap iron sculpture, pop art in all its various shapes and forms, vinyl figurine shaping, obscure format photography, origami, on the spot portraits with felt pens, cotton candy sculpting (which of course is edible), cubed elephant sculpture…you name it Art in the Park has probably seen it. It is with the utmost certainty that you will find something you like. Some artists go out of their way to craft pieces that are only available at Art in the Park, as well as giving a friendlier (but not necessarily cheap) price range for those in attendance.

Art in the Park is scheduled to take place on Sunday, March 23 at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo. The event will be open from 10am to 10. We recommend you dress for comfort, and enjoy a great midsummer’s night filled with art.

Reviews

  • “It feels like home! Truly a service with a heart .. Keep it up!”

    Shan D., Tripadvisor

  • “Stayed at the Discovery Primea Makati for two nights in May in their Two Bedroom Primea Suite. This is truly an above and beyond hotel which after its soft launch I would be surprised doesn’t get fully booked straight away! Will now always make the Discovery Primea my hotel choice in Manila. Will be back next year!”

  • “I have stayed at many hotels in the City and have by far enjoyed this stay the most. From the moment I arrived I was greeted by warm and friendly staff who were very accommodating. The stand out for me is the apartment style facilities. A home away from home. Spacious rooms and modern appliances with a vast array of Chef inspired menu options. Will be back soon.”

  • “A truly exceptional hotel. Very friendly and accomodating personnel, luscious food to die for, exceptional facilities with an exceptional view of BGC, Makati and Ortigas Skyline, and top notch accessibility. We’ll be back for sure.”

  • Great ambiance, service and food. From the lobby to our room, the experience was beyond words could describe. Kudos especially to housekeeping for the upkeep of the room. I would definitely recommend this hotel chain to my family and friends.
