Metro Manila (CNN Philippines Life, April 27) — This week, explore the storied legacy of a university campus, learn more about plant and human relations, peep (and maybe buy) collagraphs inspired by “another breed of engkantos,” and sign up for some creative community modules.

Mga Lamang Poste

The works in Anton Villaruel’s “Mga Lamang Poste” were borne from the artist’s observations of the posts he would come across along Teacher’s Village in Quezon City. During these walks, Villaruel thought that “perhaps another breed of engkanto lives in plain sight of us, in the metal.”

Visit Cartellino to browse Villaruel’s collagraphs in “Mga Lamang Poste.” The exhibit is up untl May 29.
