The land of exquisite (not to mention expensive) paintings and of gold and money. Too bad we weren’t allowed to take photos besides from the once in the first floor.
Also, this exhibition reflects on the experience of Filipinos living and working in different continents around the world. There are tons of paintings reflecting the hard work of our country’s Overseas Filipino Worker. Through the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Manila, this exhibit tells us the role of artists in their global cultural interaction.
On the other side of the museum is where all the money were located (plus the history of how one became the other) All the past designs were there and it’s very amusing to look at different kinds of money used for different transactions during the early time.
Besides from the photos, it is the knowledge that I was able to gather while I am in this museum that truly matters. I can’t wait to be able to visit more and more museums, art exhibits and the like in the near future.
