Fourteen of the 17 national artists are featured in the 45-pieced exhibit. The list includes Fernando Amorsolo, Carlos “Botong” Francisco, Napoleon Abueva, Victorio Edades, Vicente Manansala, Cesar Legaspi, Hernando Ocampo, Arturo Luz, J. Elizalde Navarro, Ang Kiukok, Jose Joya, Benedicto “BenCab” Cabrera, Abdulmari Asia Imao, and Federico Aguilar.
BPI Foundation’s third art exhibit is curated by Ayala Museum’s senior curator and conservation head, Ken Esguerra. The masterpieces are arranged to inspire thriving Filipino artists by identifying and idealizing the states and stages of Philippine nation as portrayed by the country’s National Artists.
