Care for some art and improv to close National Arts Month?
The Metropolitan Museum of Manila celebrates BenCab with SPIT.
(SPOT.ph) It’s pretty hard to bounce back to the dull and dreary after the ArtFairPH that was, but don’t worry—there are other exhibits to fuel your art fix till the end of February.
BenCab: The Filipino Artist is still ongoing at the Metropolitan Museum of Manila. Showing at the ground floor galleries until February 27, the exhibit features the artist’s creative years, all 50 of them, from 1965 to 2015. See the art that he's produced since he was a student at the University of the Philippines Diliman all the way to the works that he's known for today. One of the biggest shows that the Met has ever mounted, the exhibit includes more than a hundred pieces, ranging from paintings to sculptures, most of them belonging to private collections that have not previously been made available to the public.
To add a playful touch to the affair, the Silly People’s Improv Theater (SPIT) will be at the Met on February 27 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. to treat guests to their unique brand of comedy.
Tickets for the February 27 event are priced at P250 inclusive of admission fee and a free guided tour of the BenCab exhibit at 2 p.m. The Metropolitan Museum of Manila is at the Bangko Sentral ng Pilipinas Complex, Roxas Boulevard, Manila. Museum hours 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (Monday to Saturday). For inquiries, call 708-7828.
