About the Event:
In celebration of the Buklod Sining 21st Anniversary and countdown to SILVER Anniversary by the year 2014, the Grand Exhibition is a kick-off and a fund raising event of Buklod Alumni Society to start the countdown with diverse projects that will enhance the artistic spirit of students and UE alumni. Aside from the Grand Exhibition, Buklod will also hold the International Performance Art Festival of TUPADA and NCCA Art Show. The Art Exhibition will focus not only in paintings and photography but also in sculpture and performance art. This will be the biggest “art group” exhibition in the history of the College of Fine Arts. Alumni, students, advisers and guest artists are encouraged to submit one artwork each for the said exhibit. About the Theme: The idea of giving homage to Philippine Cinema through paintings, sculpture and photography is a way for us, artists to express our thoughts and appreciation to local film industry as it creates history.
The theme of the 2011 Art Show is “Tribute to Philippine Cinema”. Artists may create paintings, sculpture and photography about the following:
– Silver screen icons from 1950’s up to now. (Paintings)
– Famous film from 1950’s up to now. (Paintings)
– Architectural Photography of Old Movie Houses around the Philippines. (Photography or Painting)
– Old Photographs of behind-the-scenes during film productions, directors, actors etc (Photography)
Old Photographs should be original property of the artist for intellectual property rights concern.
Venue: The alumni society opted for Philam Life as a venue for art exhibitions. Philam Life is located at United Nations Avenue in the heart Manila. For the second time, Buklod Sining will experience the hospitality of Philam Life Center for the Arts this coming February 1 to 18, 2011 as part of UE’s celebration of National Arts Month.

FUND RAISING for the event:
Since last May of 2010, we have already conducted meetings with the alumni on how to raise funds for Buklod Sining Alumni Society. Again, the project of Alumni Society is different from the projects of Buklod UE. The beneficiaries of the projects of the first are the alumni and students. Buklod UE has its own student-projects and budget. Still, the alumni society is open to extend help in terms of financial and moral support. Whilst, this is our major obligation to them. The alumni society’s money is a contingency fund of Buklod Sining UE as well.
For more information http://www.buklodsining.wordpress.com Late November of this year, we will open a bank account (bank book) for you to be able to deposit your monetary help or donations. Any amount from you will be highly appreciated, just keep the receipt and email it to us for our reference.
Updates concerning Buklod Alumni Society’s Budget would be available twice a year. Sponsorship: Buklod Sining is always open for sponsorship in cash and in kind. Please let us know if you have contacts who are willing to support us. For example, beverages and food sponsorship, tarpaulin, contacts in newspaper and magazine, exhibition venues for future shows etc.
