Our Banner Project, From Idea to Completion

We started this blog, back in November 12, 2006, with this very activity in mind. Tomorrow, exactly 31 months to the day, on Independence Day - June 12, 2009, we will have delivered on this goal.

The Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Exhibit opens tomorrow (Independence Day) at 4pm at the UP College of Law with a free mini-concert by Peryodiko. The show will remain on view until July 11, 2009 around the University of the Philippines’ Academic Oval in Diliman, Quezon City.

At the end of its run, the banners will be converted into tote bags by two women’s communities in Antipolo and Laguna, and sold as original works of functional art. Proceeds from the sale will benefit PADYAK - a UP Mountaineers-led movement to promote cycling and environmentalism as healthy lifestyles, as well as other CANVAS efforts to promote greater awareness and appreciation for Philippine art, culture and the environment.

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

gud pm. this is Paul. Im a recent graduate of U.P. F.A. Baguio. just wana ask if some1 like me can join the group in exhibiting paintings.

i'll be very honest with you, nowadays due to lack of resources(watever kind that be) it's very hard to find a place where i can exhibit my works. Especially now that i'm alone and having no group.

can I ask if i can join, what are the requirements to join the group and were can your Group be found. thanks and looking forward to meet and join you.
