“We now have a greater sense of appreciation of the things that are grown and being consumed. We also have gratitude to the farmers, the traders, the scientists, the policy makers, and other agriculture stakeholders. I hope this exhibit will make an imprint in our collective memory, that we should not take things for granted. Rather, we should learn how to appreciate agriculture beyond its traditional functions, as art embodies the life of agriculture,” said Karla Sajona-Sta. Cruz, one of August Rush’s participating artists.
