In celebration of the nation’s EDSA Revolution victory and National Arts Month, the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) Committee on Visual Arts (CVA) is staging the Handover Ceremony of “The Human Cordon,” a 24” x 30” oil on canvas work which depicts a Filipino family in ‘People Power’ protest.

Nemiranda's “The Human Cordon,” a 24” x 30” oil on canvas work, depicts a Filipino family in ‘People Power’ protest. The masterpiece will be accorded to Presidential Sister Mrs. Ballsy Aquino Cruz (representing President Benigno ‘Noynoy’ Aquino III) in a formal handover ceremony at the National Conference of PVAF: TRE (Philippine Visual Arts Festival 2012 The Rizal Experience) on the morning of February 19 at Thunderbird Resort-Binangonan, Rizal.

The Nemiranda painting served as the basis for a special postcard which was issued by Philippine Airlines in time for President Cory Aquino’s second state visit to the U.S. in 1989.
Artist/Committee on Visual Arts head Nemiranda believes that “Human Cordon” is an ideal gift to the Aquino clan on the 26th anniversary of the EDSA phenomenon.
