Meanwhile, Jaime Velasquez Park visitors will be able to view the live installation by Studio 1616 artists known as “Reflect Deflect.” This uses steel and mirrors as reflective surfaces that encourage visitors to closely examine themselves.
Lastly, Art in the Park and Globe Platinum will present 100 pieces for part two of Filipino street artist Distort Monster’s ongoing project “Monster Mayhem MegaMash.” The project’s monsters will be available on the website as giclee prints that contain unique QR codes that enable buyers to onboard images as NFTs once activated.
