After experiencing the tiring trek to La Presa, we head out to BenCab Museum.
Coming from the city, it would probably take you 30 minutes.
This museum permanently houses the works of our Philippine National Artist, Benedicto Cabrera. — the reason behing the Museum’s name. He is widely known as the Master of Contemporary Philippine Art.
He graduated from the University of the Philippines with a degree in Fine Arts in 1963. He has exhibied widely in places as far as Asia, Europe and United States.
Aside from his collection, some galleries also exhibits other Filipino Artist’s Works.
General Admission is at Php 100. While Senior Citizens and Students are priced at Php 80.
You will be greeted with these paintings and you know for sure, you’re in a good place for art.
I believe you can say that he is very fond of Bulol Sculptures.
Some of the paintings you will see there.
They also have a rather popular gallery: Erotica.
I am glad we have this kind of museums that cater to Philippine Art. They deserve more time and exposure. Filipino artists deserves more attention and appreciation.
