Renowned Artist Nune Alvarado Launches First Exhibit in ILOMOCA entitled, ‘Songs from the Sea’

In the coastal city of Sagay in Negros Occidental, Filipino artist Nunelucio Alvarado has made not only a home but a community.
“Inaawitan ako ng dagat,” says Alvarado of the peace he found in this place—the kind that has paved the way for a new kind of prosperity, one that feeds back into his community to enrich the lives of its members through art.

“Tonight marks another milestone for us at Megaworld as we mark the first year since we ventured into the intricate world of museum management, and already we are closing the year with yet another highlight exhibit. Nune Alvarado’s ‘Songs f…
