Arts & Design


Resonating the Foundation’s philosophy of “paying it forward,” the alumni organization of MADE winners—MADE NOW (Network of Winners) held a parallel exhibit on September 13-15, 2012 at the Le Pavillon, Metropolitan Park, Pasay City, of which a percentage of the proceeds will be used for the organization’s outreach programs. Participating artists include: Clarence Eduarte, Ernilo Germino, Ferdinand Doctolero, Juan Sajid Imao, Julius Anthony Del Castillo, Lester Rodriguez, Melvin Culaba, Mervy Pueblo, Noel Ferraris, Noell EL Farol, Norlie Meimban, Rolando Ventura, Raffy Napay, Rex Tatlonghari, Ronald Jeresano, and Salvador Ching.

Further expanding this advocacy, Metrobank Foundation launched the Metrobank Art Club in November 2012. The art club was established in order to bring together art collectors and enthusiast and to provide a venue for the members to exchange ideas and experiences through artistic and cultural activities initiated by MADE and MADE-NOW. The Club aims to cultivate awareness and deeper understanding of Philippine art and support Filipino artists.
