Manila Water, CANVAS, One Ayala and Manila Water Foundation present Waterscapes: An art exhibition for World Water Day. Waterscapes seeks to use art to help raise awareness and appreciation of water, a resource often taken for granted that plays an outsized role in the environment, the economy and, ultimately, the preservation of life on Earth. The exhibition features commissioned aquatic-themed pieces created by more than 100 prominent and emerging local artists.

MANILA, Philippines – In celebration of World Water Day 2024, Manila Water, with its social development arm Manila Water Foundation, and partners CANVAS – Center for Art, New Ventures & Sustainable Development – ​​and One Ayala, held a art exhibition titled “Waterscapes”.

Waterscapes, the 16th edition of CANVAS's Art for Development Outdoor Banner Project, seeks to use art to help raise awareness and appreciation for water, a resource often taken for granted that plays an outsized role in the environment, history , in the economic prospects, and future of our nation.

Present during the groundbreaking ceremony were Manila Water President and CEO Jocot De Dios, National Artist Ben Cabrera, Makati City 2nd District Representative. Luis Campos, Makati City Mayor Abby Binay, CANVAS Executive Director Gigo Alampay, MWSS Deputy Administrator for Administration and Legal Affairs Claudine Orocio-Isorena, Manila Water Foundation Executive Director Reginald Andal, and One Ayala marketing manager, Mela Lasangue.

More than a hundred local artists were invited to share their interpretations and reflections on the essence of water – its fluid grace, its reflective calm and its vital force – and to incorporate water-related elements into their respective works of art.

Each piece, then, is a confluence of creativity and advocacy.

In late April, images from these artworks will be used to create artistic banners that will be installed at the future location of the CANVAS Children's Museum of Philippine Art Tumba-Tumba in Ibaan, Batangas; as well as in other pedestrian-friendly locations to bring the art and subject matter closer to the public in non-intimidating and more relaxed environments.

The exhibition will be on display until April 4, 2024 at the Lobby, 2nd level of One Ayala Mall in Makati City.
