ADRIAN RIOS Pula.Puti.Bughaw. The Heritage Collection

The National Historical Commission of the Philippines (NHCP) and the Kawit Tourism Office present the heritage collection of Adrian Rios in a show billed Pula.Puti.Bughaw. on December 29, 2011, Thursday, 5:30 PM at the West garden of the Aguinaldo Shrine in Kawit, Cavite, Philippines.

The staging of Pula. Puti. Bughaw. is a step towards realizing NHCP's thrust of transforming its shrines and museums into living museums and into 21st century museums. It also intends to raise seed fund for The Kawit Heritage Preservation Fund.

Adrian Rios is a fave among photographers since his works are rich in colors and texture. A set of new 30 pieces will be shown to a select audience of 150 in Pula.Puti.Bughaw. All heritage-inspired, the collection shall convey the richness of Philippine culture amidst the contemporary times and it will be a sort of travelogue of the global Filipina.
