Since I grew up in Antipolo City, I always get asked about Pinto Art Museum. It was a shame, though, for I wasn’t able to visit the place until last summer.
It was a hot Saturday morning. Eager to break free from my weekend routine, I decided to check out the museum many friends were talking about. I took a cab to Katipunan, then a jeepney to Antipolo City. From the cathedral, I took a tricycle to Grand Heights, the village where the said museum was in.
Honestly, I loved the place. I immediately realized that it was worth coming back to every now and then. Apart from being home to really brilliant artworks, it was also a perfect destination who wants to take a break from the stress of everyday life.
In a quiet and calming place like this, one could easily find peace. Here, you could be free from distractions. Yet, be prepared to hear mostly your own voice–something you usually don’t hear or simply take for granted when immersed in the cluttered, noisy, and busy city.
Beware, beware. This voice usually gets louder in the presence of sublime masterpieces.
