Buying art at this year’s virtual Art in the Park is as easy as shopping online
A step-by-step guide on how to start online art shopping—you can even get a rebate or pay in installments if you use a credit card
Aug 10, 2020
Today is the day! The first-ever online Art in the Park opens virtually to the public on their website with a catalog of works from galleries, collectives and individual artists you can straight up add to cart.
But since this is a new platform and relatively a different approach compared to how you would usually purchase art from an art gallery or even in past Art in the Park events, here’s a quick guide on how to do it.
It’s basically like any online shopping we have done so far in quarantine so it shouldn’t be hard to navigate. Everyone knows how to shop online, right? But here is the fun part: you can get a four percent cash back when you use your BPI credit card on purchases of at least P25,000. You can even opt for monthly installments for pieces with a minimum amount of P5,000 through the BPI’s Balance Conversion Facility.
So let’s get started!
Step 1. Visit artinthepart.ph
Step 2. Browse through the selection of art by category or by gallery
