SM Art in the City inspires hope

DURING difficult days when distancing from each other is becoming a norm, art comes in as a tool to reconnect people and inspire hope, creativity and resilience.

This is the central message of a contemporary art exhibit in SM Lanang Premier in partnership with the Dabawenyo Artists Federation Inc. (DAFI).

The art popup, which features over 42 artists, runs until April 25 to put the spotlight on vibrant works that express the dynamic spirits of Davao artists.

Varied pieces with strong references to Davao's environment await art collectors who are eyeing to spruce up their homes and personal galleries.

Shoppers who drop by to appreciate the displays are also engaged with soulful experiences where art is made a tool to provide a sense of perspective and connectedness.

"Art speaks volumes despite being confined within a frame," said curator Victor Secuya. "For firms, art can elevate the environment, uplift spirits of employees and spur productivity. For homes, art provides color, impetus for dialogue, and open doors towards creativity."
