The Makati West Rotary Club‘s art exhibition continues this year with much enthusiasm as the group teams up with 27 of the countries leading sculptors including historics like sculptors Sajid Imao, Ramon Orlina and Impy Pilapil, as well as fast emerging talent from youths like the 22 year old modernist Kylo Chua and his father Seb Chua. It is a project by the club’s Culture Committee that will be spearheaded by project co-chairs National Artist I.P. Santos and Jun Alvendia.
