They often times say that Filipinos view art as something intended only for the rich. To me, this is unfortunate as I believe that art is something that everyone should have a chance to enjoy. That’s why I find the street art in BGC cool, because it brings art closer to the younger generation and it has made art accessible to everyone.
Century City Mall and Galeria Delas Islas’ “A Century of Philippine Art!” exhibit, which gives tribute to great Filipino talent for eternalizing centuries of Filipino tradition and culture into timeless masterpieces, is another welcome development in bringing art and culture closer into the masses.
A hundred masterpieces by world-renowned Filipino artists who have painted and sculpted their names into our country’s history is currently on display at the 4th level of Century City Mall in Kalayaan Avenue, Makati City. The exhibit will run until Oct 6.
The exhibit will allow individuals and even parents to expose their kids on the beauty and depth of Philippine art. Imagine seeing a hundred art pieces curated for over a centur by one of the oldest art galleries in Manila. Galeria de las Islas or Gallery of the Islands is the art gallery located at the Silahis Center in Intramuros has been exhibiting paintings, sculptures and other works of art since 1967. It has become noted for its collection of Philippine genre art.
