To show its support to past deserving recipients of the National Artist Award, Freeway will be introducing its National Artist Collectors' Series. The first pocket collection will be featuring the beautiful works of our very own literary genius Nick Joaquin as interpreted by Freeway.
It is of great pleasure that I have been invited to Freeway Loves Art National Artist Collectors' Series Launch to be held at The Row, Glorietta 5 on August 18, 2009.
