(SPOT.ph) Yuchengco Museum in Makati City is known for its massive collection of works by National Artists like Fernando Amorsolo, Carlos "Botong" Francisco, Vicente Manansala, and Napoleon Abueva. It is also home to a site-specific installation called Suspended Garden, which resembles a floating Japanese Zen garden where museumgoers can meditate and reflect on the art piece. You can now see these and more for free on October 7 and 8.
This is in observation of the Museums and Galleries Month, a national celebration that highlights the importance of art in nation-building. For 2019, the theme is "Building the Nation, One Exhibit at a Time," which looks into the role of museums and galleries as instruments in raising national consciousness among Filipinos.
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.
