“Unfolding: Half a Century of the Lopez Memorial Museum and Library” represents what the Eugenio Lopez Foundation today maintains as some of the most important tenets of Lopez Memorial Museum and Library: to preserve its holdings and have them accessible, engaging and relevant for future generations.
The book contains chapters on the history of the institution, the rare and important works in the library, and the new directions envisioned for the museum and the Roberto M. Lopez Conservation Laboratory taken up by writers who themselves have worked intimately with the collections.
While the book stands as eloquent testimony to the passion and generosity of its founder, it is by the current Lopez generation and the men and women who have contributed to the preservation and enrichment of Philippine history and culture that this publication was made possible. And it is to the larger audience of Filipiniana that this book is directed. “Unfolding: Half a Century of the Lopez Memorial Museum and Library” is available at the museum for P2,500 (with box) and P2,000 (without box).
Lopez Memorial Museum is at the ground floor, Benpres Building, Exchange Road, Pasig. Museum days and hours are Mondays to Saturdays, 8 a.m.-5 p.m., except holidays. For more info, call Fanny or Jane at 631-2417.
