Neither the rain nor the traffic deterred the glamorous set of New York and Manila from trekking down to Greenwich Village to support Pinto Manhattan Manila on a Monday night.

Works by 30 Filipino artists were shown for 24 hours at the cavernous Urban Zen, Donna Karan’s nonprofit space.

Pinto Art Museum founder Dr. Joven Cuanang with his co-organizer Dr. Luca Parolari and art historian Patrick Flores helped curator Federico de Vera select pieces for the event.

Skype sessions with between artists in New York and Manila made palpable the art and technology connection between the two bustling cities.

Proceeds from the event will go to the Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo and the Asian Cultural Council, which supports cross-cultural projects by Asian and American artists.
