Pinto Art Museum: A Glimpse to the Threshold for Contemporary Art Practice

Hey lovelies! I ended my Sunday with a very serene visit to my hometown's very own Pinto Art Museum. People, lately, started to post their photos on their social media accounts about this museum and I wonder what's really inside that makes it too popular. Honestly, I've been living in Antipolo for almost half of my life and yet I haven't visited this yet. Thankfully, my friends loves art and were all as curious as me. So we paid a visit, and made the most of all of the attractions inside.

"Pinto" means door in Filipino. A door is a gateway into somewhere you wish to go, and I'm telling you that Pinto Art Museum is a doorway to another world. So let me take you inside the museum, shall we?

Well, I don't want to be a spoiler so I won't be posting too much photos of what's inside. I want this post to be a simple teaser so you will be more interested to see for yourself, the beauty that is hiding behind this gate.

The museum is hidden inside a 1.2 hectare property also known as Silangan Gardens in a private subdivision in Antipolo, Rizal. It contains massive yet welll-curated collection of modern paintings, sculptures and art installations, sure to leave visitors inspired.

If you notice, most museums are air-conditioned to preserve their artworks, but in Pinto Art Museum, all the buildings are open-air structures, which keep everything very natural. Contemporary art pieces can be found spread out in the Mediterranean-inspired walls. I'm way too excited to share everything inside, but to keep the thrill, this will be the last photo that I will share to you guys:

This one is my favorite. Haha. I was curious about the photos and when I saw this one, I told my friend that she should take a photo of me with this one.

How to get there:
If you're coming from Manila, you can ride LRT/MRT to Cubao or Shaw Blvd, then ride a jeepney or fx going to Antipolo, then get off Ynares Center if from Ortigas Avenue Extension, or Antipolo Church if from Sumulong Highway. Take a tricycle to Grand Heights Subdivision and tell the driver to drop you off at Pinto Art Museum.

If you love art and you know how to appreciate it, then you should visit them.
