REDWOOD CITY, California – The month of February marks the anniversary of the EDSA Revolution in the Philippines, and one prestigious American university has a special way of commemorating it.

The University of Southern California's Fisher Museum launched its "Triumph of Philippine Art" exhibit.

The first Filipino exhibit to be featured at USC shows a variety of Philippine art works, many of them with political themes.

Among the artworks were a giant chess board, featuring Philippine presidents, and a huge Philippine peso bill made out of smaller bills with a mirror.

The well-attended opening gala featured Philippine consulate officials, and a performance by the Filharmonics, the Filipino-American boy band that made it to the semifinals of NBC’s The Sing Off.

The exhibit, which was originally shown at Montclair University in New Jersey, will run at USC's Fisher Museum until April before returning to the Philippines.
