BSP Governor and PICC Chairman Felipe M. Medalla delivers his message at the official public declaration of the PICC and its artworks as “National Cultural Treasures.”

Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas (BSP) Governor and Philippine International Convention Center (PICC) Chairman Felipe M. Medalla recently led the unveiling of the marker declaring the PICC as a “National Cultural Treasure.” 

The declaration by the National Museum of the Philippines (NMP) underscores the PICC’s historical and cultural significance.

Designed by National Artist for Architecture Leandro Locsin, the PICC opened in 1976 and has served as the venue for countless momentous events, including the Miss Universe 1994 Pageant, the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) and Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Summits, and performances of international artists like Luciano Pavarotti, The Bolshoi Ballet, Josh Groban, Ricky Martin, and Lea Salonga.  

PICC also houses four major artworks from National Artists Arturo R. Luz, Jose T. Joya, and Napoleon V. Abueva, which were likewise designated as cultural treasures by the NMP.
