Negrense artist and UPV College of Management alumna Moreen Austria donated her sculpture “The Teller of Tales” to the UPV Museum of Art and Cultural Heritage (UPV MACH).
The metal chair along with a brass mask was part of an installation that was exhibited in the old UPV Art Gallery in 2016 during the Visayas Islands Visual Arts Exhibit Conference (VIVA ExCon).
Austria finished BS in Management but decided to pursue a career in the visual arts. She won the Grand Prize in the Sculpture category of the Metrobank Art and Design Excellence (MADE) award in 2017.
The Deed of Donation was signed by Austria on 14 April ceding the work that has been with the University for seven years.
The artwork is now displayed at the Taliambong UPV Art Gallery as part of the Lúbiok Hiligaynon Art exhibition which traces the development of art in Western Visayas. (OICA)
