Great weather welcome us as we started this exhibit at The Museum at De La Salle University (DLSU) in partnership with the DLSU Office for Strategic Communications who organized a special viewing of its current exhibit entitled “Food for Thought: A Celebration of Good Taste,” organized to honor Ms. Dorren as writer, teacher, friend, and benefactor and to commemorate the 10th anniversary of her death.
Ms. Della Fernandez Besa, sister of the late Doreen Fernandez, gives her keynote message to the attendees held last July 27.
Curator Ms. Lalyn Buncab opened the program with a brief history of how DLSU became the custodian of the Wili and Doreen Fernandez private collection. She also talked about the different works of art that comprised the collection.
“The exhibit represents Doreen’s life and work---her good taste in food, in writing, in art and in education---highlighting what is good in Filipino culture” Buncab said.
Some of Doreen memorabilia / items in this exhibit includes her favorite books, trophies, photographs, art works, plaques, even here grades way back in Ateneo are intact. I'm so amazed how she kept those things in a nice form (looks like new until now).
Paintings from well-known artists as Doreen collections.
