Looking for Juan - A Recap and A Start

From the original artworks that explored the Filipino Identity...

...which were transformed into outdoor art banners...

...and which finally, in turn, were recycled into one-of-a-kind art bags...

...our Looking for Juan Outdoor Banner Project has truly been exhilarating (at least for us), and hopefully for all of you as well. We enjoyed it so much that we hope to institutionalize as an annual event.

Some postscripts:

* From the proceeds from sales (completed and anticipated) of the art totes, CANVAS donated P25,000.00 to PADYAK, a UP Mountaineers-led movement that promotes cycling and environmentalism as healthy lifestyles. Thank you to everyone for your support.

* Art tote bags (plus a handful of premium ladies bags and laptop bags) are still available. Email if interested, or else please visit 1/of Gallery in Serendra or the Museum Shop of the Cultural Center of the Philippines were we've consigned some pieces.

* Our biggest thanks, of course, to the artists, graphic designers and writers who participated in this maiden event.

* We're set to do it again next year. For some details, click here.

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