The BAFI Public Art Program aims to make art truly interwoven into the very fabric of everyday life in BGC. With a vision to foster a spirit and character that gives soul to the places where people live and work, BAFI infuses urban surroundings with permanent installations, functional art projects and cultural events.
With this regards, Bonifacio Global City (BGC) as Bonifacio Art Foundation, Inc. (BAFI) celebrates ArtBGC Mural Festival 2016. Now on its sophomore run, ArtBGC promises vibrant new murals and programs to make art and culture more accessible to Citizens.
The festival is done in collaboration with LA-based art consultancy LeBasse Projects and Honeycomb Communities. Multi-disciplinary artists such as: PastelFD, Andrew Schoultz, HOTxTEA, Bunnie Reiss, Aleks Kocev and Blaine Suque are bringing in their unique brand of creativity, hoping to build on the iconic atmosphere of BGC. Representing the Philippines in this festival are Kris Abrigo, Trip63 and ArtBGC Open Call winner, FK.

While the painting is ongoing, BAFI has created a variety of programs to bring art closer to the community. The Alveo Art Tours is designed to walk you through the different mural sites – old and new. These daily tours start at the Alveo showroom along 28th Street. The Mind Museum will host Cafe Scientifique – a world-wide movement to bring science closer to the public through conversation. Public art will be discussed and dissected on May 14.
Both events are free and open to the public.
