New Art Installation to Commence Ilocos Norte’s 202nd Year

Marking its 202nd Founding anniversary, the Province of Ilocos Norte is set to unveil a new art installation on February 2, 5:00 p.m., at the Provincial Capitol lawn, Laoag City.

“It’s a very significant day for Ilocos Norte because once again we’re commemorating our history, our origin as a province. At the same time, we strive to lay-out plans for the future. All of which are reflections of what we have accomplished, we have achieved as a province in the past,” Provincial Tourism Officer Ianree B. Raquel remarked.

This year’s celebration features an art installation inspired by the extensive coastline of Ilocos Norte in which materials to be used are indigenous materials and plastic wastes.

“Our Ilocos coastline is beautiful, we have different colors of sand, very interesting geological features all across the thousand kilometers of coastline in Ilocos Norte. At the same time, we’re using trash in the installation to remind the public that it’s not all natural and beautiful in our coastline but also there’s a lot of wastes that we have to start being aware of, so that we can lessen our impact on the environment.

“We aim to achieve that the lighting for the evenings will be solar-powered,” Mr. Raquel added.

Since the start of his administration, Governor Matthew Marcos Manotoc has been pushing for a greener and more environmentally responsible Ilocos Norte, noting that the province “must continue to uphold its reputation as the Renewable Energy Capital not only in the Philippines but also in Southeast Asia.”

Moreover, the Open Capitol Job Fair on February 2 will mark the beginning of celebration alongside the light-up of the art installation. While on February 3, other activities that will display the Ilokano creativity in different forms of art include the Capitol Open House, trade exhibitions, and special showcases, among others.—Blessing Angel V.
