The Art Association of Bacolod – Negros has chosen the perimeter walls of the University of Negros Occidental – Recoletos as the venue of the public art mural for the Earth Day 2008 entitled “Koloran ta ang Kalibutan.” From April 19-21, 2008 the Art Association of Bacolod –Negros artists with the participation of UNO-R Web Team artists painted the walls with the environmentally conscious art designs.
The mural designs aim to awaken the hearts and minds of the people of Negros to actively work in preserving Mother Nature. It starts from home, how we recycle our trash, how we protect our environment with clean air and of how we live our lives as environmentally conscious individuals.
