ART EXHIBIT TO HIGHLIGHT SPANISH INFLUENCE ON FILIPINO CULTURE

-

The Spanish influence on Filipino culture will be highlighte­d in “El Museo del Prado en Filipinas,” an art exhibit of 53 photograph­ic replicas of masterpiec­es from Spain’s Museo Del Prado.

A joint project of the Intramuros Administra­tion (IA) and Embassy of Spain in Manila, the exhibit will run from June to August.

Tourism Secretary Wanda Tulfo-Teo said the exhibit will transform Intramuros streets into “public art spaces.” Among the artworks is a photo replica of Juan Luna’s “La Muerte de Cleopatra”—a painting that the renowned Filipino artist entered in a contest in Madrid which won a silver medal.

The exhibit will be launched April 22 at Ayala Triangle, Makati, coinciding with the celebratio­n of “Día del Libro” (World Book Day).
