A SEVEN-DAY Zamboanga Art Exhibit is set to be held to showcase the rich culture and heritages of Zamboanga City as seen through the eyes of its residents.

The City Hall said, in a statement, that the art exhibit is in line with the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival celebration of peace, culture, and diversity.

The exhibit, which will run from October 2 to 8 at City Mall Tetuan, will showcase a collection of submitted visual artworks that will range from paintings and photography to sculpture and mixed media as one of the cultural events of the Zamboanga Hermosa Festival activities.

The artworks will be culled from entries submitted by students, and amateur and professional visual artists who are residing in Zamboanga City.

Applications and submissions will be accepted until Friday, September 15, before a screening committee will identify the pieces to be included in the curated exhibit.

The exhibit intends to reflect the colourful and diverse culture, and rich heritage and traditions Zamboanga is known for. (Bong Garcia/SunStar Philippines)
