The Museum at DLSU honors Doreen G. Fernandez


The Museum at DLSU honors Doreen G. Fernandez

She’s an epitome of excellence , hope , and peace , a model to the sector she belongs and the community as well. And somehow she’s the only one who combines and gives relation to Lasalle and Ateneo who somehow has its differences both in their fields and learners as well.


The Museum at De La Salle University (DLSU) in partnership with the DLSU Office for Strategic Communications organized a special viewing of its current exhibit entitled “Food for Thought: A Celebration of Good Taste,” organized to honor Doreen G. Fernandez as writer, teacher, friend, and benefactor. The exhibition is also a commemoration of the 10th anniversary of her death.

Curator Ms. Lalyn Buncab opened the program with a brief history of how DLSU became the custodian of the Wili and Doreen Fernandez private collection. She also talked about the different works of art that comprised the collection. Before the program ended, Besa shared her message to the guests on behalf of Doreen’s family.

“The exhibit represents Doreen’s life and work---her good taste in food, in writing, in art and in education---highlighting what is good in Filipino culture” Buncab said.

Items in the exhibit include memorabilia of Doreen such as books, art works, trophies, photographs, and plaques that carry the theme of food. The exhibit will run at The Museum at DLSU until August.
