A week-long group art exhibit opened at the La Consolacion College-B Auditorium in Bacolod City on November 4 to raise funds for the school’s Center for Music, Arts and Culture.
Zilla Rozzi Javier, focal person for the CMAC, said 18 visual artists, most of whom are products of LCC, are participating in the exhibit titled “Puhun” (A Celebration of Arts and Dreams).
The show is a collaboration of the different local artists who would like to support LCC’s vision of becoming a home or beacon of light in terms of the Arts, she said.
“In the past, LCC has been excelling in the Arts, not just in visual arts but also in theater and performing arts, so the present administration would like to revitalize that and see that for the future of LCC,” Javier said.
For its Fine Arts program, LCC offers Studio Arts, Advertising, Interior Design, Industrial Arts and Digital Media Arts, she said.
Javier said they also have a couple of activities lined up this year like a three-day music workshop where participants will learn the basics of different musical instruments like the guitar, piano, and violin.
In December, they will stage the “Festival of Lights” which will be a musical presentation of students, teachers and personnel of LCC, she added.*
