Art and Anthropology: Portrait of object
Field Museum Chicago
CHICAGOThe prestigious John D.
and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation
has awarded the
first arts and culture grant to be
received by the Field Museum of Natural History and the first
given to Filipinos.
This grant from MacArthur Foundation (funder of many PBS programs)
will feature an exchange between
five Filipino artists from the US and
five from the Philippines, producing 12 new works of art.
Each artist will create a painting portraying a Filipino artifact
from the Field Museum collection (and artists in the Philippines
will do likewise from local collections).
In addition, all 10 artists will be
creating an interactive collage in both places, which will be
donated to the respective sponsoring institutions in each country.
In the US, the mural and individual
works will be exhibited at the Field Museum.
As part of the project I was able to
go to the Philippines for the first time this past summer to showcase
my work there as well as create the Philippines colabrative mural.
The completed mural as well as the
ten individual works of art will be on exhibit at the FIeld Museum
until July 2017.
