5 Reasons To Visit Art in the Park 2017
Calling all art lovers!
Whether you're a young artist, an occasional enthusiast or a long-time connoisseur, you can enjoy beautiful art. That's probably one of the greatest things about it—it's for everyone.
This is echoed by Art In The Park—every year, they continue to break down stereotypes and remind people that art should spread happiness. In this fun weekend happening, art galleries and independent artists from around the country will showcase pieces that would surely wow first-time goers and loyal visitors.
On April 2, the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village will once again be transformed into a wonderland for people who love art from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. Here are five reasons why you shouldn't miss this event:

There will be a wide array of art pieces to choose from.
This year, Art in the Park is featuring over 50 galleries (Ang I.N.K, Carmera Club of the Philippines, Cevio Art Haus, and Timber Design Lab, to name a few!), art collectives and student groups—most of which are first-time participants. Whether you're adding to your collection or just starting to accumulate pieces, you will have a ton of options to choose from.
It's a budget-friendly art fair.
Art in the Park strives to make all forms of art approachable and affordable! All of the pieces have a price cap of P50,000 but most pieces go way below the limit—making it impossible not to get at least one eye-catching item for your home.

Not only do you get to shop beautiful pieces—you can help the art community, too.
Since 2006, Art in the Park has made it its mission to donate a portion of all profits to the Museum Foundation of the Philippines in support of their projects for the National Museum. This means any purchase you make goes toward sustaining Philippine art and culture.
You get a chance to take home limited-edition pieces.
In collaboration with Secret Fresh Gallery, various artists will be creating mold resin versions of the bird in Art in the Park’s distinctive logo with their signature style, making each piece a true original. These bird models will be up for sale at the booth of the Museum Foundation of the Philippines along with postcard prints of Kupas by Mark Justiniani.

It's a party for all ages.
Art isn't limited to paintings, sculptures, prints and crafts—it's about music, too. Blues band Brat Pack and a famous jazz trio will be serenading the visitors as they stroll through rows and rows of amazing art. Food and drinks will be served for everyone, too.
