CEBU CITY, Philippines – After more than a year of silence, students at USC High School of Art and Design on the South Campus finally open their annual art exhibit titled âHULAGWAY ’21â on Wednesday, June 23 at SM Seaside City Cebu.
The exhibition showcases the best works of students – a rich harvest of artwork despite the pandemic and the limitations of online education. (It should be noted that last year’s batch was unable to display due to strict security protocols being at the height of the Covid pandemic.)
Hulagway meaning “image” or “picture” in Cebuano is a fitting title for this year’s exhibition, as art begins with an image or picture in the mind of the artist and becomes a reality through creation .
This year, however, the students decided to exhibit not only for the sake of art, but creating art for worthy causes and advocacy.
Last March, they were able to exhibit digital artwork celebrating Women’s Month in partnership with Legal Alternatives for Women (LAW) Center Inc. in a week-long exhibit titled âHalad sa Kababayen-anâ at SM Seaside City Cebu.
This month, HULAGWAY ’21 will join the celebration of Animal Rights Awareness Week with a selection of posters on animal rights and welfare. This is in partnership with Mayari Animal Rescue Organization, Inc. (MARO, Inc.) – a charity that rescues and houses stray dogs and cats in Cebu City whose students all are animal lovers and staunch advocates.
Works include realistic and abstract works in oil, acrylic, watercolor, mixed media, as well as digital and poster art. A section on the history of art will also be presented.
The exhibit opens Wednesday, June 23, 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. on the Upper Ground Floor, City Wing Bridgeway, SM Seaside City Cebu, and will run for a week from June 23 to 30, 2021.
The ribbon cutting will be performed by the official USC administrators and MARO representatives, and a blessing will follow. Free entry. / rcg from PR
