Art Watch: "Portraits of Mindanao" at Park Inn by Radisson Davao

From harvest to festival smiles, Davao artists capture the spirit of the Kadayawan on canvas.

Unveiled recently and will run until August 31, "Portraits of Mindanao: Kadayawan Art Exhibit" at the ground floor lobby of Park Inn by Radisson Davao lobby sets the stage for the string of Kadayawan festivities for the hotel. It's the second art exhibit hosted by hotel in celebration of the city’s grand festival.

In collaboration with Grupo ng mga Aktibong Mindanawon Artists (GAMA) represented by Dinky Munda and led by Rolando Pino-on, the exhibit showcases the inspiring vision and remarkable talent of Mindanao's local artists. The curated artworks present facets of daily life in Mindanao - from its peace-loving inhabitants, exotic fruits, exceptional cuisine, to the rich and diverse culture, providing festival visitors and locals alike with an intimate look into the unified lifestyle of the island's people.

“This exhibit is not just about showcasing the talents of our local artists; it's also about supporting and nurturing their creativity. Through our efforts, we hope to give these artists a platform to share their work with the world, and we firmly believe that with continuous support, we will witness more artists hailing from Mindanao in the future who are successfully making a name in the national and eventually, international stage.” as emphasized by Park Inn by Radisson Davao’s General Manager, Sven Toune.

A project with a cause, 15% of proceeds from each sold artwork will be contributed to the students of the hotel's supported school, Malamba Elementary School – G. Astilla Sr. Cultural Minority High School in Marilog District. By providing assistance, art and school materials to these students, Park Inn by Radisson Davao supports budding artists of the next generation.
