Arts inside RICA

This painting inside the Chapel on the Hill is called Iloy na Tunay by Araceli Dans.

At 93 years old, Araceli Limcaco Dans (b. 1929) is a national treasure and is one of the most famous living artists in the Philippines.

Sr. Eppie lovingly calls her Tita Cheloy. She is known for her exquisitely detailed still life paintings in oil, watercolor, and acrylic, most of which feature an intricate kind of lacy fabric made in the Philippines called calado. Tita Cheloy used her artistic genius to help build Regina RICA.

Pilgrims who are art enthusiasts would be happy to know that RICA is home to several exquisite artworks – paintings, sculptures, wood carvings, glass arts, landscapes, and architectural wonders.
