A group of Boholano artists are here in Cagayan De Oro City for an art exhibit dubbed as “PiskayJamo” at the Capitol University Museum of Three Cultures Art Gallery which opened yesterday at 1:00 pm.
“PiskayJamo” is a visual art exhibit among Boholano artists to showcase Bohol’s rich and colorful history, cultural and natural heritage.
