Manila, Philippines: Yuchengco Museum has extended the special exhibition Eduardo Castrillo @ 50: Moving the Legacy Forward for three more months until February 2017. Eduardo Castrillo @ 50: Moving the Legacy Forward illustrates Castrillo’s legacy of innovation, scale, and creativity through rare sculptural pieces and art jewelry. 360-degree virtual reality experiences of Castrillo’s historical monuments at the Samsung Digital Gallery on the museum’s third floor reintroduce the monument maker to younger audiences.
Eduardo Castrillo (1942–2016)—the awarded nationalist sculptor, jewelry designer, monument maker, and pioneering radical in the visual arts who passed away in May this year—would have marked his golden anniversary as an artist. The legacy exhibition is presented by Yuchengco Museum in partnership with Samsung Electronics Philippines Corporation through the Samsung Culture Connect program. The exhibition is part of a yearlong posthumous celebration and tribute to Castrillo and his art.
Yuchengco Museum is located at RCBC Plaza, corner Ayala and Senator Gil J. Puyat Avenues, Makati City. Museum hours are Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call (632) 889-1234, visit www.yuchengcomuseum.org, or follow @YuchengcoMuseum on social media with the hashtags #SamsungCultureConnect and #Castrillo50.
