This year, SM City Bacolod has made the celebration of the National Arts Month more exciting and colorful by extending the celebration. For almost two months, various Bacolod artists and art groups have been featured in the spotlight with different events in several areas of the mall.

Changing Exhibits

For SM City Bacolod, the celebration of the National Arts Month, kicked off as early as January through the unveiling of the “Art Rules at SM” exhibit. This mini gallery inside the mall featured exceptional works of art in various mediums, themes and topics of participating artists from January to March.

The changing exhibits allowed for over 50 Bacolod artists to exhibit their works of art and offer them for sale to the public. I was able to feature one of the artists, Beto Tiano and his exhibit. In return, patrons are able to peruse the works of their favorite Bacolod artists, and even discover new talent, at their frequently visited dining, shopping and entertainment center.

Art Workshops

Aside from artworks on exhibit, Art Rules also held a series of art workshops for mall-goers who wanted to learn and reap the benefits of painting and creating. The workshops were under the tutelage of famed Bacolod artists.
