Tribute to farmers on the wall

PhotobucketThe Abono Partyl List Group in cooperation with the Dagupan Artists Circle is now using the arts to evaluate and raise the level consciousness of how we appreciate the Filipino farmer.

Art is a creative expression of significant human experiences.

Culture is the total of the inherited ideas, beliefs, values and knowledge which constitute the shared bases of social action, the total range of activities and ideas of a group of people with shared traditions, which are transmitted and re-enforced by members of the group; the artistic and social pursuits, expressions and tastes valued by a society or class, as in the arts, manners, dress, etc., and the enlightenment or refinement resulting from these pursuits.

We believe that the art and culture of the times will be showcased in different degrees, colors and shapes at the “Ani ng Sining Mural Competition” which is envisioned to somehow be able to contribute in molding the consciousness of individuals and groups not only to be economically successful but more importantly to make each person a total person.

These people must not only be a thinking people but must also be a feeling people.

These are the kind of people that Pangasinan need today.

The farmers of Pangasinan face and experience the various economic, social and political problems beset that the country.

More and more farmers cannot cope up with the continuous increase of prices of basic commodities.

The untiring labor of the farmers and the fruits of their labor will be interpreted in the competition using the theme “Tribute to Filipino Farmers.”

Archibald Macleish once said: Without the arts, how can the University teach the truth?

We are all part of a bigger University and we are all being taught the truth as each group renders their own farmework of how to give tribute to the Filipino farmer through their murals.

We believe that art has the power to make us think intensely and feel deeply in appreciating the farmer not only in terms of products produced but more how they live their lives as part of our society.
