Amorsolo retrospective at Davao Museum on Oct. 23, until Jan 13, 2009

Davao Museum of History and Ethnography will present Celebrating Ginum: A Festival for a Bountiful Harvest, a satellite exhibit of the nationwide Amorsolo Retrospective on October 23 at the museum’s Carlos O. Dominguez Gallery.

Celebrating Ginum will be the thirteenth satellite exhibit to open among 20 Amorsolo Retrospective satellite exhibits nationwide and will highlight Ginum, the pre-planting festival of the Bagobo held annually. The exhibit will drive a connection between the Bagobo community’s expression of Filipino communities’ shared aspiration of a bountiful harvest as “Fruit Harvesting”, which will accompany the exhibit.

The satellite exhibit is a joint presentation of the Metropolitan Museum of Manila and the Davao Museum for the “His Heart, Our HeartAmorsolo Retrospective. The Amorsolo Retrospective which opened last September 26 at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila is aimed to take another look at Philippine National Artist Fernando Amorsolo and his fruitful life in the arts through a four-month multi-venue exhibition of his finest works.

The satellite exhibit will run until January 13, 2009.
