Written by Antipolo Star News on . Posted in Latest News, Lifestyle, Special Features

My City, My SM, My Art paid tribute to National Artist Carlos “Botong” Francisco in an exhibit at SM City Masinag which started June 8 and will go on until June 12, 2017 at the mall’s atrium.

The exhibit also showcased how cultural spaces in the province today, like the Pinto Art Museum, serve as gateways for modern and contemporary art through the works of Erwin Leano and Japs Antido as well as the Samson brothers: Jerson, Pogs and Jaypee.

Master photographer Danny Victoriano also displayed his compelling photographs that not only highlight Rizal’s beauty and culture, but also convey environmental messages. The exhibit also amazed by revealing how the Cradle of Philippine art is nurturing a new generation of artists through art-oriented schools like the University of Rizal System (URS).

A celebration of Philippine visual arts – painting, sculpture, printmaking, photography, and filmmaking, My City, My SM, My Art is a joint project of SM, the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, the Shell Companies of the Philippines and the Philippine Star with support from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and Centerstage Productions.

My City, My SM, My Art brings art and people together by showcasing the works of masters, modernists and millenials around the SM Supermalls. Advocating art for all, the team works with communities to mount exhibits, workshops and contests in key cities around the Philippines.

The province of Rizal was honored as the country’s Culture Capital on August 24, 2010 as part of the ASEAN program that highlights, cultural initiatives as a key element in Asian community building. Supported by the UNESCO, the program allowed the Philippines to travel through a cultural highway for two years by promoting people to people exchanges.

This is not surprising as the province named after our National Hero Dr. Jose Rizal has been known as the Cradle of Philippine Art because of its artists’ communities and folk festivals.
