Faces and Facets of Life
June 7, 2007 - August 25, 2007

sabungeroThe Museum features this first term an exhibition titled Faces and Facets of Life, an exhibition that showcases portraits and genre artworks - a panorama of struggles and successes, individual leadership, and collective courage as rendered in different styles by various Filipino artists from the Wili and Doreen Fernandez and DLSU Art Gallery Collections.

Artworks of National Artists Fernando Amorsolo, Bencab, and Carlos "Botong" Francisco, and prominent Filipino artists like Federico Aguilar Alcuaz, Angelito Antonio, Norma Belleza, Jose Blanco, Araceli Dans, Jose Joya, Anita Magsaysay-Ho, Mauro Malang, Onib Olmedo, Manuel Rodriguez, Sr., Pablo Baen-Santos, among others are part of the exhibit.

Also included in the exhibit are portraits of DLSU's past and present Filipino Presidents from 1950 to present (2007), rendered in oil by Nilo Badajos, a former apprentice of Romulo Galicano. Every element in the portraits becomes the significant milieu from which a person's life evolves. It is through the Presidents' guidance, dedication and vision that the De La Salle University has found its mark in tradition and excellence.
