In observance of National Women’s Month, Miriam College Museum-GAWA (Gallery of Women’s Art) mounted a major exhibition entitled “Tatsulok” which was formally inaugurated on March 3, 2018 at the Mother Mary Joseph Foyer. The said exhibit features work of contemporary artists that celebrate the Filipina through the lens of the ancient symbol of femininity – the triskele. The woman is seen in three phases: the maiden, the mother and the sage. The maiden represents hope, the mother characterizes love, and the sage embodies wisdom.
On display were the artworks of Diana Alferez, Moreen Austira, Dennis Baquial, Magiting Baquial, Phoebe Beltran-Almazan, Gem Blanco, Glenn Blanco, Sinag de Leon, Charo Defeo-Baquial, Dante Enage, Patrick Esmao, Bing Famoso, Apoy EJ Jacinto, Leah Zoraina Lim, Roland Malic, Jama Alcala Mangalindan-Ramos, Amos Manlangit, Lakan Olivares, Iiko Paraguison-Asuque, Ayen Quias, Onats Quines, Rebie Ramoso, Joseph Renta, Benay Reyes, Karla Sajona, Joemari Sanclaria and Molly Tamola Velasco-Wansom.

Lapus, MC VP for Academic Affairs Dr. Maria Lourdes Baybay, College of Arts and Sciences Dean Dr. Margarita Acosta, administrators, students and staff; Dr. Lulu Samson, former CAS Dean, and Philippine Art Educators Association (PAEA) President Orly Noba.
