These events will heat up your February

Who said that February is all about Valentine’s Day?

February may be the month of romance, but it doesn’t have to be all about relationships. This month can also be about falling in love with art, in any way, shape, or form. February’s filled up with exciting events that feature the best art that the Philippines has to offer, from the celebrated Art Fair to book sales and art markets. So go out, have fun, and meet your next favorite thing.

Art Fair 2020

The highly coveted Art Fair is in its eighth year with various exhibits and new spaces for various mediums of art. There’s the ArtFairPH/Open Studios, which is a series of workshops and demonstrations about art, ArtFairPH/Film, which will celebrate the last 100 years of Philippine cinema, and ArtFairPH/Incubators, an interactive space infused with technology.
