Ambeth Ocampo to lecture on José Rizal
RENOWNED historian Ambeth Ocampo pieces together the image of national hero José Rizal through the Lopez Museum and Library’s extensive Filipiniana collection in his lecture, “Rizal Without the Overcoat: The Lopez Collection of Rizaliana,” on July 4, 2-4 p.m.
In commemoration of the 25th anniversary of his best-selling work, “Rizal Without the Overcoat,” Ocampo recounts his life-changing first visit to the Lopez Museum when he was a college freshman in 1980.
Looking through the breadth of rare books, maps and paintings by 19th-century Filipino artists, he became intimate with Rizal’s letters and correspondences, and photographs.
Expect an afternoon filled with his witty narratives, unconventional anecdotes and a distinct perspective on Philippine history.
An award-winning writer, Ocampo writes a column for the Inquirer and is associate professor at Ateneo de Manila University.
Registration fee for the lecture is P135.00 for adults and P115.00 for students and members of the Museum Membership Program. It includes admission and a guided tour of the exhibitions. Gourmet Farms Inc. will also serve freshly brewed coffee during the lecture.
