Limited edition giclees by renowned painter Juvenal Sansó were sold to raise funds for Museo Pambata, the children’s museum that’s been temporarily closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The works, “Golden Bloom” and “Wandering Dream,” were sold in a fundraising event, Sanso Flowers for the Filipino Children, held by Fundacion Sansó in partnership with the Museo Pambata. Fundacion Sansó is a non-profit organization preserving the Sansó’s artistic legacy, with a museum in San Juan.
The fundraiser began in November, and 10% of the proceeds amounting to P300,000 were turned over to Museo Pambata in June, along with prints of the two giclees
“During the lockdown was a very difficult time for Museo Pambata. We have to let go a lot of our staff, so we are a very lean team right now, and we added some bees in Museo Pambata since we cannot have kids.” Museo Pambata President Bambi Mañosa said.
Museo Pambata, a children’s interactive museum established in 1993, continues to plan future programs despite the pandemic. – Rappler.com
