THE UNIVERSITY’S development as a center of art education across the centuries was tackled in the exhibit “From the Church to the Academy”, ran from May 8 to 20 at the UST Museum of Arts and Sciences.

In the exhibit, artworks in the UST collection by Felix Resureccion Hidalgo, Juan Luna, Fabian dela Rosa, Simeon Garcia to Pablo Amorsolo, Fernando Amorsolo, Teodoro Buenaventura, Victorio Edades, Vicente Manansala and Galo Ocampo were exhibited to show the evolution of Filipino artistic style and thematic content.

Maria Sita Maita Oebanda, UST Museum collection management and documentation assistant, said the paintings are considered the “cream” of the UST collection.

The paintings were divided into four divisions or “phases”: “In the name of the Church”, depicting biblical characters as well as prominent Church personalities; “Secular Art and the Academia”, highlighting Filipino secular paintings; “The Academy under the State” consisting of paintings from the American colonial period and “Teaching Modernism” consisting of paintings from modern art schools like UST.
