DAVAO CITY – Park Inn by Radisson Davao set the stage for the string of Kadayawan festivities with the launch of the “Portraits of Mindanao: Kadayawan Art Exhibit” at the hotel’s ground floor lobby last August 3rd.
The opening and ribbon-cutting event welcomed distinguished guests from the local government, tourism sector, honorable consuls, corporate clients, as well as friends from the media. Attendees were treated to a vibrant and upbeat experience by the Siningtala Dance Company of St. John Paul II College of Davao who performed traditional Tausug and Manobo dances.
Davao city Councilor, Hon. Al Ryan Alejandre also delivered his message and expressed his gratitude to the hotel for the support of local artistry.
“Portraits of Mindanao” marks the second art exhibit hosted by Park Inn by Radisson Davao in celebration of the city’s Kadayawan Festival. The festival is one of the major festivals in Mindanao and is celebrated as a way of expressing thanksgiving for the abundance of nature, the rich culture, bountiful harvest and the peaceful and serene way of living.
In collaboration with Grupo ng mga Aktibong Mindanawon Artists (GAMA) represented by Dinky Munda and led by Rolando Pino-on, the exhibit showcases the inspiring vision and remarkable talent of Mindanao’s local artists. The curated artworks present facets of daily life in Mindanao – from its peace-loving inhabitants, exotic fruits, exceptional cuisine, to the rich and diverse culture, providing festival visitors and locals alike with an intimate look into the unified lifestyle of the island’s people.
“This exhibit is not just about showcasing the talents of our local artists; it’s also about supporting and nurturing their creativity. Through our efforts, we hope to give these artists a platform to share their work with the world, and we firmly believe that with continuous support, we will witness more artists hailing from Mindanao in the future who are successfully making a name in the national and eventually, international stage.” as emphasized by Park Inn by Radisson Davao’s General Manager, Sven Toune.
15% of proceeds from each sold artwork will be contributed to the students of hotel’s supported school, Malamba Elementary School – G. Astilla Sr. Cultural Minority High School in Marilog District. This is another way of the property to support budding artists of the next generation through providing assistance, art and school materials to these students.
The “Portraits of Mindanao” exhibit is open until August 31st. In addition to the art exhibit, Park Inn by Radisson Davao is offering Kadayawan room and F&D promotions, including the return of the Kadayawan Boodle Fight at VANDA, their all-day restaurant.
