Antipolo: Pinto Art Museum

December 11, 2016

The day after we visited Philippine National Museum in Manila, seemed like I am craving for more artworks. I would still like to visit other National Museums. I started to search one until Pinto Art Museum caught my attention on the Facebook feeds.

There’s this one artwork that I saw online, the Swim Bike Run work of art.

I immediately relayed the information to Rick since we are somehow both sports enthusiasts.

We visited this place until we got a chance to explore Pinto Art Museum. We got off to Antipolo Church.

Since it was Sunday afternoon when we arrived, we decided to attend a mass first. After hearing a mass, we went up to the altar of Mama Mary to touch her dress, pray for a moment and ask for guidance and blessings.

We took tricycle to bring us to the Pinto Art Museum. We paid our entrance fee and left our bags to the baggage counter.

They gave us a map and followed it.

The place was like it brought me to the other side of the world. There’s a touch of Santorini that made it more pleasant and peaceful.

There were some couches and chairs too.

I was really overwhelmed and excited to see and explore all masterpieces. I didn’t know all the persons behind those artworks but I really admired them. I loved their ideas and their talent. Rick is also good in art but in a different perspective.

Here’s my most favorite Work of Arts among all masterpices that I have seen. I mean all of them are perfect but here are my top picks.
