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).

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.
