<>The Sikat Pinoy National Art Fair of the Department of Trade and Industry was held from September 26 to 28, at the SM Megatrade Halls 1 & 2 at the 5th level of SM Megamall Building B in Mandaluyong City.

Organized by the Bureau of Domestic Trade Promotion, this was the first ever national trade fair devoted to the creative industries and to the promotion of art entrepreneurship.

The Sikat Pinoy National Art Fair brings together different art forms, including paintings, sculptures, prints, film, pottery, photographs, the performing arts, literature, music, and more. Fine jewelry and crafts from the regions were also available for sale.

Art collectors had a wide selection of artworks and fine crafts to choose from. Corporate event planners and party organizers had the opportunity to network with performers, musicians, dancers, film makers, and other creative professionals for their future requirements. Students of the humanities and aspiring artists found inspiration from the different works showcased at the event.

The venue was even transformed to create a community environment, with the exhibits grouped into clusters. As one entered the hall, a major art installation by Filipina artist Impy Pilapil was exhibited at the registration foyer. To the right was the display of fine crafts from the different regions, with a special setting featuring the recipients of Gawad sa Manlilikha ng Bayan or National Living Treasures Award.

The program of activities of the three-day Sikat Pinoy National Art Fair included performances from featured artists, talks and book launches, as well as film showings.
