How these abandoned WW II Jeeps in Manila transformed into dazzling public transportation art
'We just like to make things pretty'

Watch the video above where Canadian-Filipino artist Patrick Cruz takes the Interrupt This Program team on a Jeepney ride through the streets of Manila.
Art as political protest, as a means of survival, as an agent of change, as a display of courage and delight. Interrupt This Program explores art in cities under pressure.
