Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod’s he-ART-fully welcomes the festive season with back-to-back celebrations. 

Shapes, Shades & Scapes, a one man show by Mr. Edbon Sevilleno

Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod he-ART-fully celebrates the beginning of the yuletide season through a complete showcase of art, dance, and music.

The occasion began with the launching of Shapes, Shades & Scapes, a solo exhibit featuring the works of Negros-borne artist Edbon Sevilleno. The abstract showcase provides viewers with an ethereal experience of finding images and shapes within and behind other forms, providing a safe passage through the composition. Local prominent figures of the Negros art scene, such as Mr. Eduardo “Eddie Boy” Ledesma, and Ms. Ligaya “Gaying” Lizares were invited to cut the ribbon together with artist Edbon Sevilleno and Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod, Front Office Manager, Mr. Archie Javellana.

“What we have here (exhibit) is the kind of art that reveals the limits of our understanding, the one that lets you abandon superficial perspectives,” said Archie Javellana, Front Office Manager of Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod

As guests marveled at the fascinating display of artworks, Christmas cheer spurred at the venue with the entrance of dancers (Yuri Crew) initially poised as guests at the gallery center. The dance signaled the start of another affair, the ceremonial tree lighting. Guests were directed to Marapara Plaza (Pool Deck), where a 15-foot tree awaited its lighting.

Ushered by the dancers, Ms. Julia Javellana, Assistant Mall Manager of SM City Bacolod & Mr. Sherwin Lucas, General Manager of Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod, led the ceremonial lighting.

Lifting the mood to a holly-jolly beat, dancers performed to an altitude as the Christmas Tree lights up the deck. Guest of Honor, Ms. Carmeli Bantug – Zayco, representative of Bacolod City Mayor Alfredo “Albee” Benitez, delivered a message of greetings from the mayor.

“Christmas is a season of reminiscing the vibrant colors of our youth and rediscovering the sentiments of our hearts – and for us, it’s gratefulness. We dedicate today’s occasion to the people who followed and supported our journey to becoming the Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod that we are today,” said Sherwin Lucas, General Manager of Park Inn by Radisson Bacolod.
