Kanina bigla kong naisipan na pumasyal sa Vargas Museum kaya niyaya ko sina Wik at Majih. Pumunta kami sa museum after lunch. Pagdating namin dun, sineset up pa lang ang exhibits sa 1st at 3rd floors. Sa 2nd floor muna kami pinadiretso kung nasaan ang collection ng mga classic works nina Juan Luna, Fernando Amorsolo, Felix Resureccion Hidalgo at marami pang iba. Bawal nga lang mag picture sa area na ito. After namin usisain ang bawat artwork sa 2nd floor ay nabitin pa rin kami. Pinayagan naman na kami na mag-ikot sa 1st floor.
The exhibits being set up are part of the CANVAS exhibitions: The Next Chapter (at the 1st floor gallery) and Only in the Philippines (at the 3rd floor gallery). The picture posted above is our favorite. I also took pictures of the other artworks that I liked.
Yung ibang artworks hindi pa naisasabit sa wall. Nagpipintura pa din sila ng mga panels at may mga artwork pa ata na hindi pa nailalabas.
The exhibit on the 3rd floor looks interesting, too. But we are not allowed to go there. Balik na lang daw kami bukas.
Kung gusto niyo rin makita ang mga artworks na ito, the CANVAS exhibits will formally open to the public tomorrow, July 10, at 4pm. Hindi ko lang sure kung until when ang exhibits pero usually they last for a month.
Vargas Museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday, 9:00 am to 5:00 pm. Entrance fee is Php 30. For UP Students with IDs, free entrance on Wednesdays and only Php 20 entrance fee for the rest of the week. Like the UP Vargas Museum Facebook Page for more information and updates 🙂
