The Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) launched “Tanaw,” a virtual exhibition featuring some of the best works of various Filipino national artists as part of efforts to promote cultural awareness and celebrate the country’s rich cultural heritage.
Selected from the BSP’s fine art collection, the exhibition features works of Fernando Amorsolo, Benedicto “Bencab” Cabrera, Napoleon Abueva, Federico Aguilar Alcuaz, Ang Kiukok, Victorio Edades, Carlos “Botong” Francisco, Abdulmari Asia Imao, Jose Joya, Cesar Legaspi, Arturo Luz, Vicente Manansala, J. Elizalde Navarro and Hernando R. Ocampo.
“Tanaw” can be accessed via the BSP website through a viewing platform that allows visitors to explore virtual gallery spaces. Curated by the BSP Museum, the exhibition also showcases clickable artworks with corresponding background information.
Recognized widely as one of the country’s leading art collections, the BSP fine art collection includes outstanding paintings, works on paper, tapestries, and sculptures.
Additionally, a four-minute projection mapping showing the works of 14 national artists on a loop are shown every night on the BSP building until March 11.
The BSP Museum serves as the custodian and repository of various cultural treasures acquired and donated over the past five decades. In addition to its expansive fine art collection, the museum features pre-colonial gold and pottery, numismatic pieces, and a decorative arts collection.
