Photos on the arts, festivals, food, and heritage sites of ace lensman Ronnie Baldonado, of the Visayan DAILY STAR, will be featured at the launching of the 2019 National Arts Month in Bago City, Negros Occidental, on Friday.
Dubbed as “Paghabol: Weaving the Arts in the Visayas”, and anchored on the national theme “Aning Sining”, the celebration will open in the morning with an Arts Fair at the Bago City Coliseum, to be followed by the unveiling of Baldonado’s photographs at the Balay ni Tan Juan Museum.
The official launching program at 2 p.m. will be preceded by a parade, from the Balay ni Tan Juan Museum to the Bago Coliseum, and will feature the award-winning performance of the Bago City contingent in the recent Fiesta Republica Dulansangan in Malolos, Bulacan. The launching will end with Sayaw Pinoy, a one-hour show of different dance genres from the country’s topnotch dance groups.
Baldonado expressed his excitement and gratitude for the exhibit of his works. A native of Bago, he learned photography in Cebu City while taking up dentistry at the Southwestern University, and was a window display artist of Penshoppe. His hobby-turned-into-profession brought him to various festivals in Negros Island. He is a commissioned photographer of the Tourism Division of the Negros Occidental provincial government.*
