My City My SM My Art exhibit is back in Cebu to celebrate the lives and works of National Artist Napoleon Abueva, the Father of Modern Philippine Sculptor and Manuel Rodriguez, Sr., the Father of Contemporary Philippine Printmaking.
This campaign is spearheaded by SM Publicity Department under the leadership of SM Senior Vice President for Marketing and Communications Millie Dizon with the support of Metropolitan Museum of Manila, National Commission for Culture and the Arts, Shell Companies of the Philippines, Centerstage Productions, and the Philippine Star.
Like all SM Malls, which have launched the campaign, SM Cebu brings you with pride the My City My SM My Art project which aims in showcasing Philippine visual arts. “This campaign truly brings art and the people together through the works of masters, modernists, and millennials in a roadshow around SM Supermalls,” says SM City Cebu Assistant Mall Manager Maria Teresa Mempin.
Over the past few years, the My City My SM My Art SM series has highlighted the different facets of the Philippines’ rich culture, its tourist’s attractions, its cuisines, and most recently its artisan crafts. This is the second time the art roadshow has made a stop in Cebu. The campaign was first launched in SM Seaside City Cebu last March 2016 where the works of the featured young artists from Cebu City with Romulo Galicano as the master artist was showcased.
