About the Piece
At Far Eastern University, the students’ artistic aptitude is nourished and guided by the competent fine arts faculty and a physical environment conducive to creative work. The FEU student artist finds himself or herself in this locus: a learning institution bejeweled with its collection of artworks and enveloped by the nurturing enclosure of nature.
More than just an “interaction” art, the Moriones painting created by a slew of FEU students can be rightly called “Collective Art.” As such, it is an art form that, especially in a student community, attracts much interest and, under the guidance of an overseeing mentor, can foster values of teammanship and disciplined cooperation. This Moriones is a product of just such an endeavor. The subject, as is familiar to many, is the folk-religious festival which is celebrated during the Holy Week in the island of Marinduque
