FEATURE: GSIS MUSEO NG SINING


GSIS Museo ng Sining was inaugurated on April 23, 1996, as a tribute to the creative endeavors of the contemporary Filipino. The idea of putting up a GSIS museum was incorporated in the 1979 Master Plan of the new GSIS Headquarters, representing a corporate effort to consolidate and define the best of the country has produce in the field of contemporary visual art.

In 1980, then GSIS President and General Manager Roman Cruz recommended to the GSIS Board of Trustees the purchase of select paintings by prestigious Filipino artists. Apart from its vision of helping define the growth and glorious flowering of Philippine visual arts, the GSIS considered these art pieces as some of the best investment vehicles available, believing that protection of the Filipino public extends beyond insurance into heritage.

As a corporate custodian of some of the country’s national treasures, the GSIS chooses to align itself with other visionary corporations that share in this belief.


OBJECTIVES

THE GSIS Museo ng Sining has the following objectives: to collect and conserve Philippine art and artistic expressions from the colonial period to the present; to exhibit and document Philippine and non-Philippine art and artistic expressions; and to heighten art appreciation among the GSIS personnel and the general public. The GSIS Museo ng Sining functions not only as an exhibition space but as an educational facility as well. It implements the following programs: permanent exhibitions of the GSIS Art Collections (in the Luna Room, Amorsolo Room, and the H.R. Ocampo Room), changing exhibitions in the galleries featuring cultural themes and works of new artists; art lectures; art competitions; performances like the Thursday Concert Series; and the workshops focused on the role of art not only as an aesthetic experience but as a significant factor in everyday life.

GSIS acquired more than a hundred artworks by renowned Filipino painters, including National Artists Fernando C. Amorsolo, Hernando R. Ocampo, Carlos V. Francisco, Napoleon V. Abueva, and Vicente S. Manansala. Aside from these collections, the museum has also acquired works of other notable contemporary artists, and the artworks from the winners of the GSIS Art Competition.
