Philam Life granted the National Museum with another Php 1 Million through the Philam Foundation. This was Philam Life’s 2nd installment in relation to their agreement that began last year. Under the agreement, Philam Life will donate the same amount annually for the next 5 years that will be used for the museum’s maintenance and restoration of the paintings at the Philam Life Gallery as well as extending its acquisitions. The sum was received by National Museum Assistant Director Dr. Ana Labrador on behalf of the National Museum during the recent exclusive tour.

The Philam Foundation has also been collaborating with the National Museum in building classrooms in typhoon-affected areas under the “Philam Paaralan” program. They jointly built four new classrooms – two in Loon South Central Elementary School, in Loon, Bohol soon after the earthquake and two in Salug Elementary School in Guiuan, Eastern Samar, which was among the schools devastated by Typhoon Yolanda.
Philam Life’s 2015 National Museum Tour
The recent event, hosted by Philam Life, toured the guests to the Philam Life Gallery which houses the late National Artist’s artworks—Vicente Manansala. Manansala, famous for his signature art style called “transparent cubism”, created the Philam Life’s Head Office murals. As the crown jewel in Philam Life’s collection, his paintings depict Filipino life. He passed away in 1981 and was later proclaimed as a National Artist in Painting. His works are now available for public viewing through the help of Philam Life.
Filipinos have always shown their passion for the fine arts. These arts have greatly contributed to our Filipino culture starting from the famous Juan Luna to our National Artist Fernando Amorsolo. And as he believes in the importance of developing education and promoting the advancement of Philippine arts and culture, Philam Life’s new CEO Axel Bromley, boasts for Manansala’s collection:
“As an art connoisseur myself, it is a privilege to be part of an institution that strongly supports the arts, we hope that through this partnership with the National Museum, more Filipinos can appreciate our collection and have access to these precious artworks of National Artist Vicente Manansala”.
Such partnership inspired the International Rice Research Institute (IRRI), and has followed the Philam Life’s kind deed. IRRI also loaned their two Vicente Manansala murals to the National Museum. With these partnerships, the museum is hoping that more private artwork collectors or corporations will do the same.
Philam Life is indeed a Filipino company that’s happy to promote the Philippine art and culture and see artists excel in their craft. They feel that they are very much part of it as an establishment and doing so is also aligned to their core value’s passion for excellence.
Being widely recognized in the life insurance industry for more than 50 years, Philam Life is committed to continue to be relevant in the lives of Filipinos by providing them with the right products and the right solutions to address their real life needs.
