There’s just no rest for artists and art enthusiasts in Metro Manila as the art scene in the city gets busier, bigger, and better each year. After a brief respite following Art Fair Philippines 2018, Art in the Park is slated to take place on April 15 at the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village, the affordable art fair’s home for the past 12 years.

Also organized by the formidable Philippine Art Events trio of Dindin Araneta, Trickie Lopa, and Lisa Periquet, the more laid-back Art in the Park is held for the benefit of Museum Foundation of the Philippines. Though entrance is free of charge, it would be difficult to resist purchasing anything, since items are pegged at affordable prices, thanks to a price cap given to all exhibitors: nothing more than P50,000, with bargains begging to be discovered and found.
