The Door to the New Millennium – Pinto Art Gallery
Hidden Museum at the heart of Antipolo, Rizal. The Pinto Art Museum gives a big contribution to popular Arts and Culture of Antipolo, Rizal. Did you know that Antipolo City is consider one of the artist hub here in the Philippines. By the way PINTO is pronounce as PINTO(DOOR) and not Pinto (Sam Pinto, gets?)
We have a short chat with one of the tour guides of the Museum, Mr. Andy Orencio. According to sir. Andy, Pinto Art Gallery is owned by Dr. Joven Cuanang (As we hear, he is a part-shareholder of St. Lukes Hospital).
It all started with Dr. Cuanang’s enthusiasm to collect different artworks.
This is actually Dr. Cuanang’s rest house turned museum. And with a big heart to arts and artists as well, Doc open his doors by providing a place for the artist to show their artworks.
To help maintain the place, they also opened it for possible wedding or events venue as well as a place for pre-nuptial activities.
Php 5,000 for 5 person for the pre-nuptial photo-session. And it will cost Php 50,000 and up for the rent of the place for events.
Here are some of Dr. Cuanang’s collections inside the museum.
Entrance Fee: Adult – Php100 / Sr. Citizen – Php 80 / Students and Kids – Php 50. And with that price we didn’t let the moment to pass without taking photographs of ourselves.
They also have a small Souvenir Shop inside where you can buy different Artsy-fartsy Filipino products. And soon they will be opening a coffee shop as well.
Pinto Art Museum can be found at Silangan Gardens, 1 Sierra Madre St. Grandheights Antipolo City
