The youngest guest at the announcement of the 2009 Ateneo Art Awards was 3-year-old Chicha...
This year's exhibit of finalists is called The Next Wave. Could this little girl be an artist one day? Sometimes I suspect she could be a "next waver" too.... who knows.
Her comment on Ringo Bunoan's highly conceptual work: There's no drawing.
We turned this event into one of our mommy-and-me nights out. As you can see, our girls'-night-out involved a well-curated art exhibit, then a good Italian dinner. Pappy and Bear also had a simultaneous boys'-night-out. That one involved McDonalds. Haha!
Tita Yael is the curator of the Ateneo Art Gallery. She loves what she does and it shows!
The Next Wave will be on exhibit at The Shangri-la Plaza up to Monday August 17. A good reason to go to the mall this weekend. A good way to show your preschooler that sometimes art doesn't always have to be a drawing.
