One of the things that I love the most is Philippine History. I've always been attentive in school whenever this subject was being talked about especially the Spanish Colonization years.
I've been fascinated with the architecture, artifacts, designs, food, and customs that the Spaniards imparted in our National Psyche. And living in Cebu for the past few years have been an eye-opener.
And I admire people or institutions who promote the preservation of this heritage of ours.
Casa Gorordo Museum holds art contest
As a way of getting more young Cebuanos to appreciate local culture and heritage, the Casa Gorordo Museum is holding its art contest called “A House in the Parian: The Casa Gorordo Museum Art Contest”.
This contest is open to youths aged 12-16 years old and residents of Cebu or enrolled in Cebu schools.
The competition is in two categories – “House” and “Object”. Contestants can choose to send an entry for either or both categories.
If a contestant chooses to join the “house” category, he would need to do an artistic rendering of the Casa Gorordo Museum. If he chooses the “Object” category, he must do an artistic rendering of any object in the Casa Gorordo Museum.
How to Join
The art contest has a registration fee of P500, which is inclusive of a two-hour tour of the museum, a complimentary beverage, and an artist competition kit. Registration period is from February 5 to March 14, 2017.
Contestants can join the museum tour anytime from February 15 to March 15. During this time, they will select their object and category in which they wish to join. Contestants are allowed to take photos of their desired subject/subjects.
