In Marikina: Joey Velasco Gallery


Hapag ng Pagasa (Table of Hope) is a popular painting that depicts the Last Supper. But instead of the twelve Apostles, this work of art shows Jesus Christ eating in a table with twelve street children. This and other great works are now displayed at an art gallery here in Marikina.
