finally inside PINTO ART MUSEUM Antipolo

I attempted to go to PINTO ART MUSEUM a few months ago but I failed.It was due to my ignorance on museum schedules that's why. I didn't realize Mondays are off days for museums.hahaha. I heard so many things about this place---good ones of course, and during my last visit, I was awed at how lovely the place is even from the outside.


It pays to be persistent though. Since my wife was away and my friend Clint was on vacation, I convinced him to drop by the place before hearing mass in Antipolo church a few weeks ago.I was awed at how good the place is.Pinto museum now ranks #1 in my favorite museum thus far.

Entrance fee is 100php for adults, 50php for kids.That amount is nothing compares to the rich collection of art that you will find inside......

I heard it took more than 2 years to plan,construct and organize this project but it finally opened in December 2010 as PINTO ART MUSEUM nestled within the confines of Silangan Gardens. So bago pa pala talaga.

here are some interesting FACTS about Pinto Art Museum 
and Silangan Gardens

**Silangan Gardens is home to the Silangan Foundation for Arts, Culture and Ecology---a non-stock,non-profit foundation spearheaded by Dr. Joven Cuanang.

**PINTO ART MUSEUM is the newest addition to the Silangan Gardens.

**the architectural complex is designed by artist Antonio LeaƱo.

Displayed in the museum is an extensive artwork.And believe it or not, these are all collections of the Cuanang from 1986 to present. Jaw drop!

Mediterranean inspirations are also in the design of buildings which I find perfect for the garden setting.Even if we came here one summer afternoon, the place is still cool because of the shades of the trees and the color and structure of the buildings.Dilang pala pang island or beach ang ganitong designs bagay :)

THE CHAPEL
for weddings 

The Silangan Gardens and Pinto Art Museum (PAM) are also well know for events. To say well known is I guess an understatement.Many dream of being married here on their small,intimate chapel .

If you find the food at Pinto Cafe a bit pricey, andyan si Ate to save the day with her 10peso toron and 20 peso maize and 20peso buko juice.Sarap! 
(I hope I am not putting her in trouble :)


THE POOL AREA

This came as the biggest surprise.A pool in a museum grounds? But this is an events place in as much as it is a museum so a pool is perfect for party reception as well.I am not sure but I am assuming that the building near the pool could serve as an in house accommodation for guests so I imagined a night party of some sort.Perfect!

GRAND GALLERY

And just when I thought my eyes have seen all the collection, meron pa palang mas malaking Gallery sa pinaka-baba.Wowness.I was really awed at how spacious this Gallery is.And they even cared for the impaired,there's a wheel chair access.Galing!

There's one more section I missed though, the art collection inside the building photographed below.Whilst i could have opted to peek inside, I thought of reserving that for another visit.That time, i want to bring my wife with me.For sure she will droll over the art pieces she will find here in PINTO ART MUSEUM.

 aa

This is the museum one should not miss.If many of us go as far as Baguio to see Bencab Museum, I tell you,PAM is Grander in scale and significance.Not to say I don't love Bencab though, Bencab Museum is still on a class of it's own :)

  7. Very impressive, indeed! I like the ambience. However, the position of the Phil flag needs to be reorientated with the BLUE colour placed on the RIGHT (or facing downward when up a flag pole) to signify that the country is NOT at war. Perhaps, the new generation doesn't know the symbolism of the positioning of the flag anymore.

  8. I can't help but comment. The position of the Philippine flag is correct.

    Section 10. The flag, if flown from a flagpole, shall have its blue field on top in time of peace and the red field on top in times of war; if in a hanging position, the blue field shall be to the right (left of the observer) in time of peace, and the red field to the right (left of the observer) in time of war.
