Pinto Art Museum

Some might find it weird about how we juggle up on our interests. Some would say that there’s always so much going on and some (might) find it interesting, too. Nonetheless, we just do what we love, what we are interested and passionate about and even the things we don’t even know at hand hence trying out and its conversion.

Interests, passions and talents turn to ‘work’ and eventually to crafts (well, whichever comes first). And same goes as what Tina Fey once said, “Your work is your craft and your craft is your art.” How we care and hone our given skills and talents, as well dig into the deeper process on the things we are interested about (and even with those we are not totally into); then learning goes along with it. 
Speaking of interests and different approach to ideas, medium and overall art… art galleries and/or museums are the best places to see the various aforementioned accessions. 
I’ve visited different art galleries and museums before; occur whenever I travel or whenever I roam around the city for work, for personal reasons and for other errands. 
In line with this (after so many attempts), we finally set foot in Pinto Art Museum. It is situated on a 1.3 hectare property along Sierra Madre Street in Grand Heights, Antipolo, Rizal; figuring the way to the museum was kind of a challenge because we didn’t even know how to follow directions from our alive and kicking GPS – one of our closest friends who resides in Marikina; seldom yelling at us with forthrightly distressing words because we usually turn right to roads we should turn left to and go straight ahead instead of waiting for further instructions. Mehehe. 
Eventually, we made it to the museum after 1 1/2 hour travel from Quezon City.
