National Artists Named
Six Filipino artists will be conferred the rank and title of national artist in ceremonies scheduled June 9, Malacanang announced Tuesday.
Aside from Fernando Poe Jr.
who distinguished himself in film, also named as national artists were Bienvenido L. Lumbera
(who used to blog
) for literature, Ramon A. Obusan
for dance, Benedicto R. Cabrera
for visual arts, Ildefonso P. Santos Jr.
for architecture, and the late Ramon Valera
for fashion design.
The six awardees were recommended to President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo by the Joint Boards of the Commisioners of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the Trustees of the Cultural Center of the Philippines in conformity with their prescribed rules and processes.
The President, who gave her confirmation last March 30, will lead the conferment ceremonies in Malacanang. It will be followed by a tribute to the honorees to be given at the Main Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines.
The conferment rite is traditionally held in anticipation of the anniversary of Philippine independence on June 12.
