Clark Freeport – The Clark Development Corp. (CDC) continues to explore measures to promote arts and tourism in Clark amidst the pandemic – this time, by launching its first-ever ‘State of the Art’ online exhibit.
The online exhibition consists of 45 unique artworks proudly made by 25 Pampanga-based artists, which are all posted at a designated website that can be accessed through https://clarkmuseum.wixsite.com/stateoftheart.
The artists found solace during the quarantine period by expressing themselves through their paintings, thus giving birth to ‘State of the Art’.
One Kapampangan artist, Dodgie Aguinaldo, said art has become his therapy to ease his anxiety brought by the pandemic.
“I always make colorful artworks that reflect positivity. Since we are still in the ‘dark’, the pop of colors will bring joy to those who will see it,” he said.
The inspiration behind the artworks is the theme “We heal as one,”, which depicts daily life during the quarantine.
The ‘State of the Art’ online exhibit was made possible by CDC’s Tourism Promotions Division (TPD), which aims to bring the Clark Museum into homes by utilizing technology.
At the same time, the online platform encourages everyone to stay at home where they can still access, view and enjoy the virtual gallery for free at the comfort of their own homes.
‘State of the Art’ shows us how Filipinos use their talents and skills to produce something that can be a source of hope, inspiration and strength during these difficult times.
In support of our local artists, those who are interested in buying a piece from the gallery may fill up an online form at https://clarkmuseum.wixsite.com/stateoftheart. Romeo Dizon
