Last Saturday was the annual ‘pilgrimage’ to Art in the Park, the once-a-year gathering to appreciate art, do a little shopping, meet friends, people-watch, and enjoy some food, drinks and live music under the canopy of trees at Salcedo Park. Still, by far, my favorite place to hunt for arty treasures and one-of-a-kind finds, last Saturday’s Art in the Park was full of friends and familiar faces rushing about, brown-paper-wrapped-packages tucked under their arms.
Meeting with friends at the park and finding ourselves comfortably positioned near the mojito bar and food stalls early on, however, kept me from any serious browsing (although there were so many witty and eye-catching pieces on display!). I particularly loved the installation and large-scale sculptural pieces, although I was pretty sure there wouldn’t be enough room for them in our home, so I just enjoyed them in the park, LOL! But then again, there’s always next year…
Sharing some photos from last Saturday 🙂
Whimsical wooden sculptural piece
Live music and popular tunes
Paintings propped on the ground
Running into some of my favorite people…
…and my favorite UP institution! 😉
Crazy, graphic, surprising art everywhere
I wanted this “sampaguita” piece for our garden!
Loved this drippy, recycled-plastic lamp 🙂
The bamboo bike is always such an eye-catching conversation piece
Creating our own installation art from beer cans and plastic mojito glasses 😛
