And this week, the event has made a stopover in the City of Smiles — Bacolod! The My City My SM My Art Bacolod 2017 was launched last September 16, 2017. SM City Bacolod celebrated with the art community in honoring ten (10) spectacular visual artists who are using various media. The Bacolod artists honored were masters, modernists, and millennials.
