In lead up to Earth Day 2022 on April 23, SM Aura Premier and ArtisteSpace, Inc. recently staged the Art for Life + Upcycled exhibit.

The back-to-back exhibit at the Upper Ground Floor of SM Aura Premier aimed to bridge art and sustainability and create more awareness about the environment through the works of artist-advocates.

Art for Life highlighted the beauty of nature, enjoying life, and giving importance to the things around us.
