Art for Everyone at SM Premier Malls Features Artworks by Upcoming and Established Filipino Artists

Wazzup Pilipinas!

It’s Art for Everyone as six SM Premier malls simultaneously showcase a curated selection of paintings and artworks from February 16 to 27, 2016. These include SM Megamall, SM North EDSA, SM Aura Premier, SM Southmall, SM City Cebu, and SM Lanang Premier from February 27 and 28, 2016.

The event is held in support of National Arts Month on its 25th year since it was first declared via Presidential Proclamation No. 683 in 1991.

While SM has been consistently supporting cultural and art events for years now, “Art for Everyone” is being held simultaneously in these six (6) SM malls for the first time. It features artworks created by upcoming and established Filipino artists of various backgrounds, featuring different styles and media.

Dr. Patrick Flores, Curatorial Consultant for “Art for Everyone” emphasizes how important the event is in providing shoppers a venue to enjoy and learn from art, a venue that is free and accessible for everyone, and for artists and galleries to showcase their masterpieces.

“The exhibit at SM is another opportunity to broaden the public's access to contemporary art. Featuring works by established and emerging artists, Art for Everyone provides a glimpse of varied contemporary art expressions beyond the museum. It opens another platform for artists to present their recent works in a venue that attracts a large number of audiences. This exhibition also engages the support of galleries that have a track record of professionalism and support to Philippine art,” Dr. Flores said.

“Our local artists deserve to be seen more because of the kind of contribution their masterpieces make to our national culture and history. At the same time, the public can learn from these artists and appreciate good art in malls around the country,” said SM Supermalls Senior Vice President Joaquin San Agustin. “We want to be the conduit that connects our artists to a bigger audience, starting with our regular mall goers.”

The “Art for Everyone” exhibits are in collaboration and consultation with Dr. Patrick Flores and Ms. Louise Marcelino of the UP Vargas Museum and Mr. Peter Natividad of the Lopez Museum. The shows are open to the public, with featured art pieces available for purchase during the two-day exhibit.
