Celebrate Independence Day with a Leisurely and Meaningful Walk in UP

Celebrate Independence Day with us with a leisurely walk under the magnificent acacia trees around the UP Academic Oval to enjoy CANVAS' Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Art Exhibition, featuring the images and words answering the question, "What Does It Mean to Be Filipino?" and capped by a mini rock concert by PERYODIKO at the Malcolm Theater, UP College of Law.

4pm on Friday, June 12, 2009. Admission is free, but seating for the concert is extremely limited. First come, first served.

At the end of its run, the banners will be converted into tote bags, as original works of functional art, and sold for the benefit of Padyak, a UP Mountaineers-led movement that promotes environmentalism and cycling as a healthy lifestyle, as well as other CANVAS efforts to promote greater awareness and appreciation for Philippine art, culture and the environment.

See you there!

P.S. The original artworks for this project will be on display at the Alab Art Space of the Philippine Intellectual Property Office, along Buendia Avenue and Jupiter Street from June 9 through July 8, 2009.

The Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Project is made possible in part by generous support from The Pag-IBIG Fund.
