Not just a showcase of exceptional skills and celebration of creative intellects, The Distinguished is an exposition of generational talents gathered together to deliver and give back to their Alma Mater, the University of Santo Tomas (UST).

The Thomasian artists included in the lineup are not only objectively extraordinary, but are importantly influential in the artistic community, be it be painting, printmaking, or sculpture as their mode of expression, and in terms of style doing figurative or nonrepresentational that they opt to conceive. More so, their rise to fame from being an upcoming artists to the present is an attestation of continued outpouring passion to sustain relevance in which their successes serve as inspiration to many.

The selection process started in 2018 to this year to come up with a highly qualified roster of illustrious and celebrated artists. It has undergone a stringent panel of screening committees from the university, and those chosen are deemed worthy to be an honoree of the Distinguished Thomasian Alumni Award. The noble endeavor is on the progression of the art and design industry in the country and beyond to create a blueprint for everyone with the same passion to follow.
