Last June 21, when typhoon Frank was battering the Visayan Islands, another storm was happening inside the Canlaon City Pension House. Inside the powerless venue, artists from all corners of Negros gathered their skills and energy and created a storm of creativeness, imagination and ingenuity. What transpired was beyond awe inspiring. It renewed our spirit for beauty. It gave us a reason to continue. But most of all it brought the importance of art back to our lives.

Presenting again, the 1st Hari ng Negros Body Painting Competition.

Special thanks again to Nui Caballes for leading the group of artists of Negros to Canlaon City despite the obstacles caused by Typhoon Frank.
