Globe Platinum has been a long-time supporter of the arts. This year, it goes regional by co-presenting the 2nd Visayas Art Fair happening from November 25 to 27, 2022 at the Oakridge Business Park in Mandaue City, Cebu.
Themed “Connecting Visayas Through Art,” the event was organized by Cebu Design Week, Inc., which advocates for the cultivation of culture, arts, creativity, and innovation in Cebu and the region.
For its participation in the region’s largest art festival, the brand brings with it the Platinum Series Hub featuring the work of Filipino street artist Distort Monsters.
Globe Platinum customers are also invited to all exhibits. As a special treat, they will get an exclusive collectors’ preview at the Vernissage complete with cocktails and a live performance on November 24.
“We are excited about our participation in the 2nd Visayas Art Fair. This is an opportunity for us to showcase the brand’s expanding ownership of art and design to Cebu, engage more customers and supporters of the arts, and bring the Platinum experience to them,” said Kaisie Del Carmen-San Pablo, Business Unit Head for Globe Platinum.
During the Main Exhibit’s public opening on the 12th Floor of IT Center 3, Globe Platinum patrons can partake of refreshments and lightning-fast Internet speeds while discovering the breathtaking driftwood sculptures of James Doran-Webb, the creative graphic designs of Happy Garaje duo Johanna Velasco and Mark Joseph Deutsch, and other skillful Cebuano artists.
They may also participate in the raffle and purchase select pieces from the showcase of talent on display.
On the other hand, the Platinum Series Hub, which was launched last September in Manila, takes centerstage at the Atrium Garden where clients get an entrance fast lane, a complimentary fan and mask kit designed by Distort Monsters, and access to exclusive Distort Monsters merchandise for sale. Distort Monsters partnered with the brand for unique dynamic pieces in which customers can immerse themselves.
The fair’s Bodega 2022 also has a selling platform for the best of Cebu’s design, home furnishings, interiors, and home accessories curated by world-renowned designer Kenneth Cobonpue and Cebu’s Creative Hub private sector head Butch Carungay.
Globe Platinum has been sponsoring key events in Metro Manila such as Art Fair and Art in the Park as art and design are among the top passion points of its customers. (PR)
