an example of cubism from national artist ang kiukok

As there was a chance to roam around the CCP Theater Building during the start of the year long celebration of its 40th anniversary during the “Pasinaya,” ( https://letsgopinas.wordpress.com/2009/02/05/fostering-a-renaissance/), it was time to take some pictures of the treasured visual contemporary arts hanging in different parts of the edifice. This might just not happen next time around as security during ordinary days could be a lot stricter.

Some  pieces were from obscure artists; some murals were from more known and established people.  Manyof the paintings seem to be from students who participated in contests sponsored by CCP.  But it is a wonder as to where one could find the painting gems of the old masters such as Amorsolo and Manansala insice CCP.

It should also be said that CCP has a library that contains books and research materials for those wanting to study and soak into the realm of  arts and culture. Aside from the paintings scattered in different parts of the building, CCP maintains its own gallery.  In fact, CCP has two exhibit halls – Bulwagang Amorsolo (Small Gallery) and Bulwagang Juan Luna (Main Gallery).  It is has to be commended that visual arts – whether as a sculpture, drawing, painting, or photograph –  is considered as important as the other arts by CCP which objective could have focused solely on performance arts. Well done, CCP.
