See three exhibits at the Ayala Museum for free
It's a one-day event!
(SPOT.ph) Aside from the Metropolitan Museum of Manila and the Yuchengco Museum, the Ayala Museum in Makati is also having a one-day free admission event on May 19 for a belated celebration of International Museum Day. From 9 a.m. to 8 p.m., museum guests will have a chance to attend an art talk by Toym Imao and Liliana Manahan (artists of the interactive art installation called Manara), participate in special themed tours, and try out delicacies from Mindanaoan food stalls. Of course, you can also check out the three temporary exhibitions that Ayala Museum has to offer.
Manara, an Arabic word for minaret, features 23 minarets and lanterns showcasing textiles, wood, and metal work, and even music from Southern Philippines. The piece hopes to raise awareness on the diversity of the Moro culture and serve as a call for unity in this country especially in these troubled times.

Eduardo Castrillo: A Prism of Art and Friendships
A Prism of Art and Friendships is the third of a series of exhibitions held as a tribute to Eduardo Castrillo's artistic legacy. On exhibit are his metal sculptures that not only display his talent but also the life he has lived among friends.
