The Camarines Sur Polytechnic Colleges – Center for Rinconada Culture and Arts (CSPC-CRCA) successfully launched “Museo Rinconada,” an on-site open house and online virtual art and photo exhibit on February 22, 2021.
Hon. Margie M. Aguinillo, Municipal Mayor of Buhi; Mr. Frank Peñones, an author and culture and arts enthusiast; employees of the National Commission of Indigenous People (NCIP) Regional office; Mr. Joseph Jorge Sernal of the Local Government Unit of Nabua; Department of Education teachers; and college officials and students of CSPC were among the visitors and guests of the said event.
In his speech, Dr. Charlito P. Cadag, CSPC President, expressed his admiration to the Rinconada culture and arts.
“It is so rich and diverse that a ‘Rinconada Cultural Hub’ can be established to showcase cultural assets like songs, dances, oral literature, local cuisines, and many others. This is a way to promote the identity of Rinconada through its unique and amazingly beautiful culture because I believe in the saying, ‘mas mamuymuy-un a mga taga- Rinconada,’” he said.
The “Museo Rinconada” will feature a collection of local artists and student artworks, photos of artists and historical landmarks, and cultural artifacts that highlight Rinconada heritage.
The open-house exhibit is available to the public from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM, Monday to Friday.
