Cultural Center to celebrate National Artist Arcellana’s birth centenary

The Intertextual Division of the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) invites teachers, students and lovers of Philippine literature to the opening ceremonies for the celebration of the 100th birth anniversary of National Artist for Literature Francisco Arcellana at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino on Sept. 6 at 3 p.m. This event is free and open to the public. 

There will be performances inspired by Arcellana’s works, as well as the unveiling of the National Artist Francisco Arcellana commemorative postage stamp by the National Commission for Culture and the Arts and the Philippine Postal Corp. Arcellana stamps and books that feature him as the author will also be exhibited. The Arcellana family will lead the ceremonies.

The Arcellana centennial celebration is a chance for Filipinos to become familiar with the works of Arcellana, an accomplished fictionist, essayist, critic and poet. He wrote well-anthologized stories, such as “The Mats”, the Palanca award-winning “The Flowers of May,” “How to Read,” “The Wing of Madness” “Divide by Two”, and “A Marriage was Made”. Some of his works have been translated into Filipino, Malaysian, Italian, German and Russian.

Born on Sept. 6, 1916, in Sta. Cruz, Manila, Arcellana was part of the generation of writers who reinvented the short story in the English language. He also taught and held key positions at the Department of English and Comparative Literature in the University of the Philippines Diliman, where he mentored literary luminaries Alfred “Krip” Yuson, Jose “Butch” Dalisay Jr., Erwin Castillo, Charlson Ong, Marra PL. Lanot, Mailin Paterno-Locsin, and many others.

The Arcellana centennial celebration is the offering of the Intertextual Division, formerly known as Literary Arts Division, for the 47th anniversary of the CCP, which will officially start in September.
