To celebrate its 15th anniversary, Art In The Park Online returns from July 25 to August 1 to treat Globe Platinum customers with special access to work by featured artists Anna Bautista, Leeroy New, and Robert Alejandro.
Local artists showcased at the Globe Platinum Hour
Continuing its tradition to support local talent, Art In The Park has assembled an exciting lineup of artists from various fields to be part of the Globe Platinum Hour, which avid fans can stream through the event’s official Facebook and Instagram pages.
To kickstart the week-long event, multi-awarded illustrator, Robert Alejandro, returns for another edition of “Globe Platinum Hour for Kids!” on July 25, 3:30 PM, where he will once again engage kids and their parents with practical tips and tricks to create their own watercolor masterpieces at home.
On July 27, 8:00 PM, fans of avant-garde visual artist, Leeroy New, can catch the premiere of “Myths, Monsters, and Aliens: The World of Leeroy New“, a special video featuring his journey to becoming a well-loved figure in the local contemporary art scene.
On July 29, 8:00 PM, Platinum customers will catch a glimpse of up-and-coming artist Anna Bautista’s creative process in a special video entitled “Time Capsules by Anna Bautista“.
Works by featured artists accessible only through the Globe Platinum collection
Special pieces from the featured artists will be available exclusively to Globe Platinum customers on the Globe Platinum Collection of the Art In The Park website.
The collectors can expect select pieces from Leeroy New including his coveted alien masks, sculpted mirrors, and popular hand-painted hearts.
Anna Bautista, who is known for her lyrical brushstrokes that merge different cultural elements and moments across different periods, will express her artistry on limited-edition silk chiffon scarves priced at ₱8,500 each. In addition, one of three customers will have the chance to avail of a private portrait session with Anna Bautista for only ₱35,000.
To access the special collection available for sale online, Platinum subscribers can access the Platinum Collection page by entering a passcode available through Thea, Globe Platinum’s Digital Assistant, at glbe.co/PLATEVENTS.
Exclusive complimentary tokens designed by Anna Bautista
Customers who make a purchase from the special edition of Art in the Park Online will receive limited edition tokens specially designed by Anna Bautista for the event. Inspired by the concept of “Time Capsules,” Bautista memorialized day-to-day fragments in the form of exquisitely designed face masks and abanicos—a traditional hand fan made out of quality bamboo.
These tokens were produced by Casa Mercedes Inc., the oldest fan maker in the Philippines which uses techniques that are currently employed by the few remaining fan makers in Spain and in Paris, making these historic pieces part of cultural heritage.
To score these exclusive gifts, customers must remember to enter their Globe Platinum mobile number at the checkout page.
