Launch of “Pasyal: UP Diliman Art Trail” and “UP Diliman Art Inventory Project”
The simultaneous launch of the “Pasyal: UP Diliman Art Trail” monograph and the “UP Diliman Art Inventory Project” was held last 24 October 2017 at the UP Theater Lobby.
Pasyal: UP Diliman Art Trail is a revised monograph on public art and cultural landmarks inside the Diliman campus. It is the third in a series and was currently revised and redesigned for a wider readership: descriptions written in a more accessible language and the map provided to support foot and vehicular traffic. The monograph likewise can be component of related projects that showcase Diliman cultural heritage.
The UP Diliman Art Inventory project embarks on cataloguing art collections of the university. It is envisioned to expand the inventory in terms of content, support a sustainable museum education program, sustain conservation efforts aimed at upkeep of the collections and provide public access to the University art heritage.
Copies of the “Pasyal: UP Diliman Art Trail” monograph were presented to Executive Vice President Teodoro J. Herbosa in behalf of the Office of the President of the UP System and Chancellor Michael Lim Tan, by the Officer-in-Charge of UP Diliman OICA Dr Sir Anril P. Tiatco, together with Pasyal: UP Diliman Art Trail project leader Prof. Tessa Maria T. Guazon, Prof. Manuel Kristoffer C. Giron, and Ms. Louise Anne M. Salas.
