Paghilom Festival welcomes National Arts Month with the Pamana Exhibit Opening


DASMARIÑAS- Museo De La Salle celebrates the National Arts Month (2017) with the Pamana Art Exhibit.

Pamana (heritage) Art Exhibit looks into the wisdom of the past as a step towards healing current societal problems. The exhibit aimed to encourage artists and viewers to return to their roots and rediscover their rich heritage.

The exhibition was launched on February 7, 2017. It was opened with a musical performance by Bobby Balingit and the Atomic Soul, and Winston Hernandez’s performance art. Myrna Ramos EdD (Vice Chancellor for Missions, External Affairs and Advancement, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas) and Ms. Liberty Herrera (Provincial Tourism Officer, Cavite) graced the opening of the event.
