Expressing love through art, poetry, and music – the Araneta Center holds a slew of exciting activities to celebrate the month of love and romance, which coincides with the National Arts Month.
The artsy and heartfelt celebration, entitled “From the Heart,” kicks off with an exclusive ‘Love Art Workshop’ on February 8 at the Gateway Gallery in Gateway Mall. It is an art exhibit of 30 paintings that depict the country’s colorful history.
Over 20 hearing-impaired and differently-abled kids from the Philippine Association for Citizens with Developmental and Learning Disabilities, Inc. (PACDLD) and Maria Lena Buhay Memorial Foundation, Inc. will participate in the gleeful art session, where they will be asked to draw their own interpretations of love. The artworks will be on view at the museum’s Love Wall this month. This meaningful event is in partnership with the J. Amado Araneta Foundation.
Lovers can also enjoy swoon-worthy performances from talented Pinoy bands! On February 11, the new and young pop musical movement known as PPOP Generation will hold a concert at the New Farmers Plaza at 4 pm. Pinoy Boyband finalists Markus and Allen will also serenade their fans at Ali Mall.
Acoustic performers will also serenade shoppers on February 11, 12, and 14 at the activity areas of Ali Mall, Gateway Mall, and New Famers Plaza. Top it off with a romantic swing setup that provides a perfect backdrop for lovers. Roving musicians will also give out roses to women for free.
Also, watch out for the powerful performances of spoken word group known as Words Anonymous at the Gateway Mall activity area on February 14. The group aims to promote the art form of spoken word poetry all over the country. Shoppers can also enjoy sweet treats plus special performances from Noel Cabangon and other surprise guests.
