Love is expressed in various ways. For these students from the University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman, love is expressed through a fundraiser meant to help their professor whose bills are piling up in the hospital.

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), Art for Alice Guillermo is an that’s happening on May 5, 2018, Saturday, from 4 to 8 p.m., at the UP CFA Auditorium.

Professor Guillermo is professor emeritus of DAS where she is also the former chair. She is an esteemed art and social critic with a number of published books on social realist and Philippine arts.

Professor Guillermo went through 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, she suffered an acute intraparenchymal hemorrhage or hemorrhagic stroke and an acute kidney injury: raising her hospitalization and home care expenses.

The Art for Alice fundraiser has three components: an arts raffle with tickets priced at P5,000 each and guarantees an art work prize; an online arts auction; and a lugawan.
