Percentage of the sales go to Museo Pambata, which Alejandro has worked with so many times in the past, especially since most of his art workshops are focused on exploring the artistic talents of the young ones. The museum wants to develop their outdoor areas with the hopes of resuming their operations in the "new normal."

Aside from the exhibit and online sale, Art for All 2 is complemented with art workshops for kids on November 6, 13, 20, 27, and December 4 via Alejandro's Facebook page.


Art for All 2 is the third installation of Fundacion Sansó's Art + Design = Empowerment program, which was created in April. It envisions a mindful and inclusive approach to art, where an exhibit is supplemented with a sale at the Fundacion Sansó Museum Shop. Proceeds go to a community, which the guest artist supports. Bernadette De Los Santos (aka BidiBidi) and Melissa Yeung Yap were the program's first two artists. BidiBidi’s exhibit helped women in rural communities in Bicol, while Yeung Yap's show benefited the T'boli weaving community.

Art for All 2 runs from November 8 to 20 at Fundacion Sanso, 32 V. Cruz Street, Barangay Sta. Lucia, San Juan City. It is open from Monday to Friday, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
