Save the date: Yuchengco Museum announces one-day free admission
It's that time of the year!
(SPOT.ph) Good news, history buffs and art enthusiasts! Yuchengco Museum is opening its doors for free and for one day only on May 18 in celebration of International Museum Day. This worldwide event has been commemorated since 1977 to remind us that, yes, museums are significant in telling our stories as a race, nation, and community.
This year's theme couldn't be more apt, "Museums and Contested Histories: Saying the Unspeakable in Museums," subtly nudging on global issues on discrimination, violence, territorial despites, and a whole lot more. It encourages our museums to play an active role in presenting these things through various perspectives.
Currently on exhibit is a retrospective of Burmese jewelry designer Wynn Wynn Ong called Redefining Boundaries; a chilling photo exhibit, titled Chicken Hands, by Ryan Arbilo presenting the hands of the tired and weary Filipina housemaids living in France; and paintings by National Artists for Visual Arts from the museum collection.
The Yuchengco Museum is at RCBC Plaza, Ayala corner Sen. Gil J. Puyat Avenues, Makati City. It is open from Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, visit Yuchengco Museum's website.
