Pinto Art Museum
There are times that you are just lazy to go somewhere or do something outside. We just want to stay in our bed and sleep all day. Most of us end up contemplating our lives wondering if all these years, am I doing the right thing? Am I going the right path? Then you realize, it’s not the right time to question your decisions in life. Instead, you go out and continue living your life the way you want it to be. So, I thought of doing something that is light but fun and inspiring and invited my friends to visit Pinto Art Museum in Antipolo City.
Pinto Art Museum
This establishment is an art haven that houses various kinds of artwork that convey different messages and stories. Pinto means ‘door’ in English. And this place consists of gallery houses with doors bringing you to a different world of imagination. Located in the heart of Rizal province, Antipolo City, this place is very accessible and is perfect for fun bonding activity.
Once you get inside the premise, the garden area will welcome you with an ambiance of outdoor relaxation. The cool breeze just makes you comfortable sitting on the bed and foam bench while taking photos. Also, it’s actually a great place for a photoshoot for prenup or theme-specific events. You feel like every corner is just right for any angle or photo shoot.
Aside from that, there are also interesting figures and sculptures scattered around the area. Some of them are hidden and hard to notice. So, try to enjoy locating each of them.
The first gallery house gives you an abstract art and some graphics that you may want to interpret yourself to know what the message they convey.
There’s just too much to explore in this gallery. So, you have to make sure to check every corner because there are some hidden or unnoticeable arts that you could miss. Admittedly, there are those I wasn’t able to capture because of being preoccupied with fascination.
The next gallery house has a very wide canvas painting and a collection of other colorful artworks. One of the nicest place to get some instagrammable shots.
Adjacent to this is a room that has a combination of art installations like figures, sculptures, and other weird looking stuff.
The Wire Art
Going to the next gallery house, we saw this fantastic wire art. The complex and striking quality of art, looking at it will just make you speechless filled with awe.
The New Wing
This is their newest gallery house which offers another set of colorful artworks. It has a second floor so you can take a picture from above to get another view and nice angle. And this is my personal favorite. I imagined this as my personal meditating space. I’d make something like this if I had a chance.
The Novelty Arts
The next one features different stuff of today’s generation. Things that relate to younger ages and the unusual.
This is getting too long already. But if you think I’ve covered everything, you are wrong. It will take you a half day probably to see each in every corner. But for now, I am almost done. It is tiring but fun.
There’s still a lot to see if you explore outside. The backyard is a nice place to get a fresh air after you’ve done visiting the gallery houses. You can also check out their restaurant inside if you are feeling hungry. We didn’t try, though. We maximized our time in exploring the area and taking more pictures before we leave.
Definitely, it is all worth it. What are you waiting for? You should add this to your next destination! 🙂 Also, if you have a place like this that you can suggest, just let me know.
