Ayala Museum partnered with LPU Manila in presenting the traveling exhibition Kisame: Visions of Heaven on Earth, an exhibition of photographs of ceiling painting from the colonial churches in the Province of Bohol, at the LPU Mabini Hall. This was the fourth partnership between Ayala Museum and LPU Manila.

Curated by Father Milan Ted Torralba and Kenneth Esguerra, this exhibition was first presented at the Ayala Museum from May 27 to July 20, 2008 as part of the National Heritage Month celebration.It is organized annually by the Filipino Heritage Festival, headed by its president, Armita Rufino.

The photographs featured in this exhibition were taken by former Executive Secretary Paquito N. Ochoa, Jr., from the ceiling paintings of 17 churches in Bohol, in the dioceses of Tagbilaran and Talibon from April 17 to 21, 2008.  These selected works of art that adorn the parish churches are the remaining works of two pioneering Cebuano artists, Raymundo Francia and Canuto Avila.
