Hangad po natin ang malawakan at pangmatalagang kaunlaran sa ating bayan. Kaya sa halip na makuntento tayo sa “puwede na” at “bahala na,” pinagtutuunan natin ng ibayong pansin ang mga proyektong tunay na makakatulong sa Pilipino.

Tunay nga pong ang mga likhang sining na ito ay tatak-Pinoy: marami ang pakinabang, masusing pinag-isipan, at pangmatagalan. Ito po ang iniiwang hamon at inspirasyon nina Nanay Magdalena at Ginoong Garcia sa atin: ang pagmamahal sa sining, at pagdidilig ng ibayong sipag at dedikasyon upang mapayabong ito.
