The second day of the 68th Ateneo Fiesta showcased the school’s creativity through the Installation Arts exhibit held at the Roxas benches last Aug. 12, from 8 AM to 2 PM.
The event was designed to test the creativity of the students as they were instructed to construct an artistic structure with only the use of recyclable materials such as plastic bottles, discarded glass, straws and used wires.
Each division was represented by a group composed of five students coming from different year levels and courses, one member of the faculty, and one non-teaching personnel.
When asked about the idea behind the Installation Arts exhibit, SAMAHAN representative Joshua Aquino said that its main goal was ‘to have people use non-biodegradable items to create something that can relate to the theme.’
This year’s theme is: ‘Maria, kasama natin tungo sa pagbabago, pagkakaisa at kapayapaan ng Mindanao at ng buong bansa’.
Another SAMAHAN representative, Rimuel Morales, also shared his expectations about the event.
‘We’re expecting something that would reflect their diversity as participants as well as the theme itself and their talents. Diversity because they’re not just students,’ he said.
The Installation Arts contest has been a regular and familiar event all throughout the previous Fiestas. During the previous year, the contest was held in the Arrupe Hall.
The finished structures will remain on display by the Roxas benches until the end of the school’s festivities. The winners will be announced on Aug. 15.
