Likhang Bayan: An Exploration of Traditional Filipino Arts Year 5 Mga Larong Pinoy
Dates: September 20, 2011 to October 08, 2011
"Sa aming pananaw, ang Likhang Bayan at ang mga Larong Pinoy ay kapwa dapat bigyan ng patuloy na pagpapahalaga bilang matapat na bukal ng pagtuklas, katuwaan, pagtutulungan at pakikipagkaisa natin sa ating mga kapwa Pilipino.”
The UST College of Fine Arts and Design (CFAD), in collaboration with the UST Museum, are pleased to present ‘Likhang Bayan 5 at ang mga Larong Pinoy’, an exhibition of traditional Filipino art forms (Puni, Pabalat, Taka at Abalorio), which the artist-teachers of CFAD learned from our ingenious regional artists and craftsmen, and which they passed on to their respective classes. Now on its fifth year, Likhang Bayan features the works of teachers and students who explored our traditional crafts with popular, traditional Filipino children’s games as the theme. The results are surprising, whimsical and larger than life.
Exhibit viewers are invited to experience and enjoy our traditional arts and games. Aling Genny Cruz, Nanay Luz Ocampo, Ms. Gigi Garcia and Ms. Rheeza Hernandez will share their crafting skills with select students from the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila at the Beato Angelico Gallery in conjunction with the exhibit.
