LRT-1 private operator Light Rail Manila Corporation (LRMC) is continuously advocating the promotion of local tourism and culture through its ikotMNL campaign as it officially opens a pop-up exhibit on visual arts at LRT-1 Doroteo Jose Station.
Featuring works by local artists who participated in the sketch walk and photo walk organized by LRMC last September 10 and 17, the LRT-1 ikotMNL pop-up exhibit 2022 showcases different interesting sites in Manila such as colonial architectures and open spaces – all within minutes’ walk from LRT-1. The exhibit also puts a focus on LRT-1 stations, which are known for their historical significance and prominent features as uniquely Filipino architecture.
“LRT-1 has been a valuable part of people’s lives over the years. We hope that through this initiative, we can communicate our rich story and help in better appreciating our roots as Filipinos. This is also a showcase of the creativity of our local artists, and we would like LRT-1 to continue being a space where communities gather, and talents are celebrated. We are thankful to have found the right partners in Urban Sketchers Quezon City and Fujifilm X-A3 Community Philippines, who made our sketch and photo walks extra special with their talents in communicating visually the beauty and history of Manila,” LRMC Corporate Communications and Customer Relations Jacqueline S. Gorospe said.
Stop, look, and win! Two lucky LRT-1 passengers will have a chance to receive limited edition ikotMNL merchandise when they take a creative selfie with LRT-1 ikotMNL pop-up exhibit as their background and upload the photo on their personal Facebook account with answer to the question “Ano ang paborito mong tourist spot sa Manila? Bakit?” Don’t forget to include the official hashtags: #LRT1 #ikotMNL #LRT1ikotMNLExhibit and tag LRMC Facebook page (@officialLRT1). Make sure it is a public post.
The exhibit is free and open to the public during LRT-1 operating hours from 4:30am to 9:30pm everyday, and will run for one month until 05 November 2022.
