Support Local Artists

There are a lot of reasons why we should #SupportLocal artists and it goes beyond helping in a financial sense. Knowing there’s a story behind every piece, plus the passion and effort these artists have spent makes each piece one of a kind and much more special. Supporting artists by buying their works can also further inspire the artist behind the piece. Baguio City is known as an art destination and by supporting the community, we can help keep it alive and encourage our beloved artists to keep pursuing their passion.
