The two-day art exhibit, under the auspices of the Cebu Provincial Government, was aimed to promote the works of Cebuano local artists. All artworks displayed during the exhibit were up for sale and the proceeds were to fund the establishment of daycare facilities for the children of families situated in areas near the city’s garbage dumpsites and in the far-flung barangays of the province.
The term “Obra Sugbuanon” loosely translates as ‘Cebuano Work’.
