The Purita Kalaw-Ledesma Prizes in Art Criticism honors the memory of Purita Kalaw-Ledesma, art patron and founder of the Art Association of the Philippines (AAP). Ledesma was instrumental in the development of Philippine art of the post war period through the establishment of the AAP and her patronage of both established and emerging artists.
