Senator Loren Legarda graced the Commencement Exercises of the Philippine High School for the Arts (PHSA) last May 30, along with National Artist Eric de Guia better known as “Kidlat Tahimik” at the Tanghalang Maria Makiling of PHSA at Los Banos, Laguna, giving emphasis to her thrusts in promoting Filipino art and culture.

During her speech, Legarda expressed her commitment to support PHSA and see counterparts established in Visayas and Mindanao.  She stressed that it is her dream to see more art schools in the Philippines.  She also spoke of her plans to establish an Institute of Arts and Culture or a “Philippine Academy for the Arts” through established State Universities and Colleges (SUC’s).

The senator made special mention of Bhutan’s National Institute of Handicrafts where students receive four to six years training in courses like painting, weaving and designing handicrafts for their country as an example.

Legarda voiced out her conviction to fund projects that would uphold and promote Filipino art and culture.  In recollection of her final years as a student, she said that her artistic inclination made her decide to  conduct a content analysis of Vicente Manansala’s paintings during the Martial Law period, for her college thesis.

In 2016, Senator Legarda received from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) the “Dangal ng Haraya” award for protecting the indigenous peoples and her efforts towards preserving Filipino culture and the arts.
