If you haven’t heard yet, there are now officially confirmed cases of local transmissions of the coronavirus in the country, which means that now more than ever, we need to be vigilant about preventing the spread of the virus.
In light of this, the annual art event Art in the Park has decided to postpone this year’s iteration, originally slated this Sunday, Mar. 15.
“We were looking forward with anticipation to another successful edition of Art in the Park. However, in consideration of the recent advisories by both the World Health Organization and the Department of Health, we feel that pushing through with the event would be irresponsible,” the organizers said in a statement.
“We deeply appreciate the support that our participants, visitors, and partners have expressed throughout the planning process for this year’s Art in the Park. Our thoughts are with those who have been affected by the coronavirus globally, and we fervently hope that this crisis will be overcome soon.”
The laid-back art fair will be scheduled to a later date, which has yet to be determined.
