Markers unveiled to mark CCP’s 50th anniversary

“The Cultural Center of the Philippines is a fulfillment of the decades-long quest of countless Filipino artists and government officials for a National Theater,” the marker partially reads.

The Cultural Center of the Philippines unveiled two markers to commemorate the important role played by the institution in promoting, preserving and developing the Philippine arts and culture in the past 50 years.  The markers were installed at the CCP Main Theater Lobby.

“The Cultural Center of the Philippines is a fulfillment of the decades-long quest of countless Filipino artists and government officials for a National Theater,” the marker partially reads.

The event was graced by CCP president Arsenio Lizaso who welcomed the guests, while CCP chairperson Margie Moran Floirendo and Board of Trustees member Baltazar Endriga read the full text of the markers in English and Filipino, respectively.  

Likewise the event was attended by CCP Board of Trustees, executives and employees, former chairmen and presidents. The family of the late National Artist Leandro V. Locsin (who designed the 50-year-old structure) was represented by son Andy.
