Art in the Park 2020 Has Been Postponed Due to Coronavirus
Art in the Park is officially being postponed, only a few days before it was supposed to take place.
The organizers of Art in the Park issued a statement on Monday, March 9, citing the spread of COVID-19 as the reason. The annual event, which had just announced the fair late in February, hasn't released details yet on when it will be rescheduled. Read the full statement below.
Mindful of our collective responsibility to help contain the spread of COVID-19, the organizers of Art in the Park and the Museum Foundation of the Philippines have decided to postpone the event scheduled for Sunday, March 15.
We were looking forward with anticipation to another successful edition of Art in the Park. However, in consideration of the recent advisories by both the World Health Organization and the Department of Health, we feel that pushing through with the event would be irresponsible.
We deeply appreciate the support that our participants, visitors, and partners have expressed throughout the planning process for this year’s Art in the Park. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the coronavirus globally, and we fervently hope that this crisis will be overcome soon.
We hope to reschedule Art in the Park to later this year.
Art in the Park is known as the 'affordable art fair' primarily because it is open to the public for free. The paintings, prints, photographs, sculptures, and new media on view are also at prices of P50,000 and below.
