You come to Manila and you like contemporary art? Manila is a standing invitation to explore all kinds of art, especially now when names like Ronald Ventura and Winner Jumalon fetch record highs in international art auctions, and the works of more and more young Filipino artists are garnering critical acclaim around the world. What better way to gain invaluable insight and understanding into contemporary Philippine art than by going on a private guided tour of the Silangan Gardens and Pinto Art Museum that house the fascinating collection of paintings, drawings, engravings and sculptures of one of the Philippines’ most respected neurologists, Dr. Joven Cuanang, an ardent supporter and patron of the best and the brightest in Philippine visual arts. It is his enviable collection from the 1980s to the present that forms the nucleus of this museum. The tour also includes refreshments of native fruit juices, Champagne and canapés.
With a new dawn rising for Philippine contemporary art, The Peninsula Academy will arrange for curious minds or art enthusiasts like yourself to go on a private guided tour of Pinto Gallery, the Silangan Gardens and Pinto Art Museum. To make it a unique and lively experience, your tour starts at Pinto Gallery with refreshments served at Silangan Gardens. From there, your guide will take you to the capilla (chapel) with its antique santos (saints) and then on a short walk down the hillside compound to the museum. The “Art in the Hills” tour comes to a close with a chilled glass of Deutz Peninsula Champagne in hand, as well as a greater appreciation for contemporary Philippine art.
