The Lopez Museum and Library is closed for Araw ng Kagitingan | Day of Valor 9 April 2015. “We will always fight for FREEDOM!”
9 April 2015 is the 73rd anniversary of the Fall of Bataan in 1942. Sealed in blood the permanent ties of friendship and cooperation between the Philippines and the United States. We commemorate the memory of the gallant Filipino and American soldiers as well as civilians, who fought and died side by side in the defense of Democracy.
On view for our ongoing exhibit PROPAGANDA is the powerful image painted by Manuel Rey Isip in 1943, to rally all Filipino soldiers and civilians with the defiant cry, “WE WILL ALWAYS FIGHT FOR FREEDOM!”
