pinto art museum

They say unplanned trips always push through, and thats what we did yesterday
with long time friends.  we thought of going to the National Museum at first
but when I suggested to we go to an art sanctuary in Antipolo, they thought ok, 
lets start our adventure. so off we go to somewhere different, a place where 
contemporary art meets a touch of greens and nature.

so off we went to Pinto museum,  less than an hour drive away,(traffic included)
its a place where you thought you feel you are worlds away from home.
I love going to new places, specially parks, where you could see greens from all 
around, and museums!! Ive read that Dr Joven Cuanang and his architect  
Antonio Leano  opened this property to the public last 2010, catering to 
art enthusiasts of all preferences and from all walks of life.
and so.. after a rather drizzly weekend of December, I finally got to visit this 
unique  museum, and you never have to travel far to try a taste of something 
new, every turn of the corner reveals something interesting. with the picturesque 
view left and right, its not surprising that this place is popular shoot sessions 
and pictorials,  because at every angle, and  I mean it, there are numerous 
opportunities for a great facebook profile picture! theres a chapel, a 
meditation garden dedicated for pepe and his gf L.Rivera.
Unlike National Museum which protect and preserve art pieces in air-conditioned 
rooms,  all the buildings here are open-air structures, which keeps 
everything natural. the artwork and all the structures merged and is one with 
the green natural environment inside. here you observe art pieces not only hanging 
by the walls, its integrated within the seating areas and greens as art installations.
So that you will visit this place, I prepared those pictures that I loved the most

Allot around 3  hours to visit all the galleries and take photographs
around the place.

theres a pool too!

route going to Marikina. then drive along Marcos Highway heading to Antipolo.
Turn right on the corner of  Robinson’s Metro East / Sta. Lucia 
East Grand Mall, thats called Felix Avenue. then left when you reach 
Ortigas Avenue Extension. Turn left at the rotunda leading to either Antipolo 
or Taytay Diversion Road. drive and follow the Ortigas Avenue Extension rd.
