In February 2013, the SSC-R Manila Center for Culture and the Arts organized a celebration of the Philippine National Arts Month. Part of the celebration is an exhibit entitled In Transitu. It intended to feature various degrees or types of transformation or change, journey, flight, transit. These various types of change or transit may be physical, spiritual, political, or anything, and may talk about matters of love, life, and others.
Various Filipino artists participated in this exhibit, students and professionals alike. Some of the art works exhibited are shown here; the others cannot be shown here such as the “Babylon” painting of Alfredo Juan Aquilizan; “Id 2″ (mixed media) work of Juni Salvador; the wood painting of Rev. Fr. Rene Paglinawan; the “Ang Pamamaalam ng Makabagong Diyos” (an installation of old computer units) by Joey Vargas; the Persona masks by Kulay Labitigan; the photos of Jeram P. Apostol; “Resemblance of Eva,” “Resemblance of Adan,” and “Et Filii (Ang Anak)” paintings of Kirt Faustino.

Of the works in this gallery, he says: “Ito po ay mga larawan kuha sa Brgy Andap New Bataan Compostela Valley noong Disyembre, matapos ang Bagyong Pablo. Ang mga titulo ay nakabatay sa iba’t-ibang pakiramdam ng mamamayan matapos ang mapait na trahedya. At higit sa lahat, ang mamamayan ay hindi basta nawawalan ng pag-asa.“
