Puno ng Diwa to light up CCP during the holiday season
Puno ng Diwa, winning design of a competition held by CCP and OMNI will light up the CCP Liwasang ASEAN Park on November 10. This event will be alongside the lighting and the launch of the lanterns that illuminate the CCP Main Theater facade every year.
The said design won the CCP-OMNI Outdoor Light Installation Competition, a contest established to find an attractive and inspiring solution that will light up the CCP Liwasang ASEAN Park during the holidays.
PUSO NG DIWA. This installation by Leo Gerardo is inspired by the Higantes of Angono
Following the theme, “Paskong Pinoy”, artist Leo Gerardo took inspiration of the Higantes of Angono – as well as the mythical creatures of Bagobo and Manobo – and created an artwork that reflected his own take and vision of the Filipino Christmas tree. Through this piece, he wanted to relive spirit of Christmas – one that focuses on the concept of nurturing, giving and receiving, healing, and uniting.
The two projects, which will be launched on Thursday, do not only showcase the creativity and the craftsmanship of the Filipino artists, but it also highlights the spirit of the traditional Christmas in the Philippines.
