The Blogosphere Celebrates Zero In X Open Call Festival 2011

The Intersections and Beyond writes, 


“At the opening, there was a lively presentation of drum beats by Escola de Samba de Manila entitled “Batucada: A Call To Dance.” The rhythmic sounds were beautiful & powerful. There’s also a movement presentation by Batang R.O. (from Museo Pambata) headed by Nyko Maca, a piano performance, a Manga Comics exhibit, a cosplay, a gaming demonstration, and an on-the-spot painting session on a large canvas that serves as a freedom wall.”

“Museums are great memories and treasures from the past transformed the living memory into reality.” 


“My objectives in supporting the decade of collaboration of Manila’s top five museum namely Lopez Memorial Museum, Ateneo Art Gallery, Ayala Museum, Bahay Tsinoy, and Museo Pambata joining forces for Zero In: Open Call : (1) To expand people’s appreciation of preserving the memory of the past (2) To deepen the learning of our cultural heritage (3) To break barriers by literally bringing art closer to the public.”

Living Marjorney writes,


“For 32 years of existence, I can say that I only gave little of my time learning and discovering our country’s arts and cultural heritage. I got interested with the latter some years ago before I started blogging. Even though I’ve been to many museums, attended some art exhibits and watched several cultural shows I am still ignorant about arts and culture as I scan every pieces and paintings on display.”

“I am privileged to witness the grand opening of Zero In: Open Call festival held yesterday, September 15 at the Atrium SM MOA. It was about two months ago the last time I visited a museum and I have this overwhelming feeling every time I see art collections from handicrafts, paintings, artifacts, rare Philippine imprints among others. Zero In came with a brilliant idea showcasing arts in different forms. Guests and participants were welcomed by Ms. Mercedes Lopez Vargas of Lopez Museum. She also gave a brief overview of each museum.”




The City Roamer zeroes in,


“It was an awesome sensory experience as I witnessed and was immersed on the different forms of art presented at the opening of Zero In: Open Call art festival at the SM Mall of Asia (SM MOA) Atrium last night, September 15th. Along with other guests, including anti-crime advocate Mrs. Teresita Ang See, I learned about the art in different permutations.”



The Vendor Mom realizes,


“Like a lot of things I grew up believing, I have always reservations when it comes to talks about art, heritage, culture and the likes. I don’t know but I guess, art doesn’t run in my blood, simply just not my thing. Although art does not sounds so appealing to me before, I have respect for people who are into it because whether we agree or not, the artists’ individualities are probably the type who has the most ideal means of self-expression thru thought-provoking ideas, beliefs and crafts. And I salute them for taking their passion to extra-higher level.”

Thank you for all the wonderful thoughts and musings!
