(SPOT.ph) If there’s anything that years of the pandemic taught us, it’s that art will continue to thrive no matter what. Art Fair Philippines, for one, came back this year with a live event,  making us even more excited about exhibitions in various formats. Each show makes it more interesting for art enthusiasts to pay a visit to museums, galleries, and cultural centers. And there's no better time to visit these places than now.
