Catch the MET Open 2014 at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila from September 22 to October 4
Now is the perfect time to check out the MET.
(SPOT.ph) The Metropolitan Museum of Manila, fondly called MET by patrons, is opening its doors to art enthusiasts on September 21 and to the public from September 22 to October 4. Two hundred artworks will be on offer for collectors to purchase at the MET Open 2014 and proceeds from the sales will benefit the museum’s educational programs.
Preparing for the open
The Tall and BSP Galleries will house a mix of modern and contemporary artworks produced by a diverse group of visual artists who answered the MET’s call for entries. The show doubles as a survey of trends in the local art community and the featured works highlight creative dialogues among established figures in the art scene. Among the exhibitors are Pio Abad, Wawi Navarroza, Bernardo Pacquing, Gary-Ross Pastrana, and Maria Taniguchi from Silverlens Gallery.
A special auction will also be held to complete the "benefit" part of the exhibition. Museum doors open at 10:30 a.m. and close at 5:30 p.m.
