Bright welcome

artist Charlie Co's installation at the 2012 Art in the Park
A one day art fair open until midnight with food and drinks and live music in an al fresco setting—that's what Art In The Park is. The artists who participate in the fair are given one rule: all the pieces have to cost less than Php30,000 (about US$700). The Museum Foundation of the Philippines organizes this annual event to encourage people who do not normally visit galleries or invest in art to do so. And the artists and artist groups, whether well-known, up-and-coming or students, are given the opportunity to introduce themselves to other galleries and to a wider market. Visitors to this year's fair were greeted by Bacolod-based artist Charlie Co's colorful, cosplaying vaudeville trio (strictly my interpretation, okay).

magnifique, j'adore cette creation, on y retrouve un peu de Niki de Saint Phalle dans ces statues

If the rest of the fair was as beautiful and colorful as this piece, the fair was indeed a success.

We really like art fairs. Ocala has a 2-day event every year but I think I'd prefer the Art in the Park kind of thing. This is very colorful and fun and funky and unique presentation!

I think you've captured the trio!

How interesting that the museum organization is sponsoring this event. Very forward thinking of them and a service to the general public.
