Associate Professor Teody Boylie "Bong" Perez of the Department of Humanities is expediting his Art Donation Project, "Indigent Lives: A Permanent Display of Art Prints," with his recent turnover of framed art prints to serve as permanent exhibits in organizations with wide public access in Davao City. 

Associate Professor Teody Boylie "Bong" Perez turned over art prints for display to UP Mindanao and the University Library on 24 November 2020. This is part of his "Indigent Lives: A Permanent Display of Art Prints" Art Donation Project supported by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA). Chancellor Larry Digal and Librarian Merlyn Castañeros received the donations. Vice-Chancellor Karen Cayamanda and Ms. Carol Balgos signed as witnesses to the deed of donation.

In recent weeks, Prof. Perez turned over donations of art prints for display to Malayan Colleges Mindanao, the DOST-Region XI, the Philippine Science High School-Southern Mindanao Campus, the Davao City Special School, and the new Davao City Library.

An art print is a high-quality reproduction of an original artwork intended for display in public spaces.

Prof. Perez’s lifelike paintings depicting indigents' conditions have been widely acclaimed, for which Davao City awarded him its highest recognition as a Datu Bago awardee in 2016.

The 2020 NCCA Competitive Grants Program approved its support for the project, which, in their evaluation, "contributes significantly to the Filipino’s cultural legacy." Prof. Perez's project also aligns with the NCCA vision of "A Filipino people with a strong sense of nationhood and deep respect for cultural diversity" and "promoting Philippine culture and values towards Bayanihan."
