In June 2005, the New York University's Kimmel Center Commuter Gallery was transformed into an ethereal artscape of works by Filipina American artists.

Spirit of the Babaylan: Open Art Exhibit, a pioneer indoor art exhibition organized by the Filipino American Women’s Network Conference on behalf of NewFilipina, Inc. and Philippine Forum, opened on June 2 and ran through June 24. This all encompassing multi-media exhibition – the first of its kind in New York City to date - featured new and emerging work from nine Filipina American artists.

>Works of art from this eclectic group of Filipina American artists graced Kimmel Center’s Commuter Gallery to complete an ethereal transformation and usher the viewer into the Spirit of the Babaylan, its different dimensions in contrast with the realities of being a woman and an ancient spiritual and cultural legacy unique of those who know the Philippines as Motherland.

The Kimmel Center Commuter Gallery, located on the second floor of the Helen and Martin Kimmel Center for University Life, New York University's new hub of campus activity for undergraduate students, graduate students, faculty, staff and alumni, overlooks Washington Square Park in the heart of Manhattan’s Greenwich Village.
