‘Sinag’ exhibit opens at Aguinaldo museum

By: Gladys Pino

KAWIT, Cavite – In its bid to propagate profound regard for nationhood not just for its on-campus community but for a wider audience, the Museo De La Salle (MDLS) has brought its “Sinag: Tracing Emilio Aguinaldo’s Palate” at the Museo ni Emilio Aguinaldo (MEA) on Friday (June 28).

It features a chronological presentation, from Aguinaldo’s childhood in his hometown Kawit, to his many struggles as a revolutionary and a leader, where the only common theme is the food “that connects him to a place, a stage in his life,” MDLS Director Cecille Torrevillas Gelicame said.

One notable period in Aguinaldo’s life was during the Malolos Congress where he attended and was served from a menu that highlighted the local crop, “kamote” (sweet potato) which he perhaps enjoyed as a fugitive, Gelicame added.

Done in partnership with the National Historical Commission of the Philippines-Museo ni Emilio Aguinaldo (NHCP-MEA), Ige Ramos Design Center, and Republic of Taste Food Network, “Sinag” will be exhibited in various museums under the NHCP.

The concept of the exhibit aims to “bring the exhibit closer to the people, for wider reach,” Gelicame said.

The MEA exhibit, which runs until July 27, is at its 2nd run after its initial launch at the MDLS grounds in April this year.

After this, the MDLS will bring the exhibit to Museo ng Republika ng 1899 in Malolos, Bulacan and the Museum of Philippine Social History in Angeles, Pampanga.

The Museo ni Emilio Aguinaldo (Emilio Aguinaldo Shrine), in Kaingen, Kawit, Cavite, is open Tuesday to Sunday from 8 a. m. to 4 p.m. (PNA)
