The Art for Alice Guillermo is a fundraiser hosted by the UP Department of Art Studies (DAS), College of Fine Arts (CFA), colleagues from UP Diliman, and the Alliance of Concerned Teachers (ACT), and is slated on May 5, 2018, Saturday, 4 to 8 pm, at the UP CFA Auditorium. Professor Guillermo is professor emeritus of DAS where she is also the former chair, an esteemed art and social critic, author of books on social realist and Philippine arts, and a nationalist educator.
Professor Guillermo has experienced a complete heart block in 2017 where she was confined in the hospital for two months. A heart pacemaker was mounted to strengthen her health. This year, it is unfortunate that she suffered an acute intraparenchymal hemorrhage or hemorrhagic stroke, and an acute kidney injury. The costs of her hospitalization and home care continue to inflate.
The Art for Alice fundraiser has three components: an arts raffle where tickets are priced at P5,000 each and guarantees an art work prize, an online arts auction, and lugawan.
