Davao City Administrator Atty. Melchor Quitain, City Councilors Al Ryan Alejandre and Ma. Belen Acosta, SM Lanang Premier Assistant Mall Manager Jerome Yeo, and Metrobank Foundation’s Senior Program Officer Yvette Macayan graced the opening of the exhibit last night. Louise Laine Calicdan from MADE hosted the event. It was just a simple and intimate gathering that brought together people who support the country’s art and design culture. Moreover, the gathering was made more thrilling by the contemporary tunes played with a twist of classical by the Maharlika Strings.
