Pinto, Where Art Ran Away With Nature.

We've been to a whole lot of museums, but nothing has prepared us for the ethereal experience that is Pinto Art Gallery.  I have 2 words for you, Pinto --Overwhelming. Much.

Deep in the heart of Antipolo stands this unassuming structure that looks small and homey from the outside, but is a colossal wonderland from the inside.

Pinto marries art and nature.  The amount of both, brimming.

Unlike other museums that divide their galleries by walls, Pinto divides its galleries by Mexican-type stone houses.

With a sunny and fresh trek in between each.

There's even a tiny chapel that houses holy statuettes, most of which are ancient.

There were modern works, too.  This one being my favorite.

But the action really happens outside.  Just as the grounds are sprawling with greens, art sprawls along, too.  Watch...

There's so much to discover at Pinto that one trip isn't enough.  Who knows?  You might find some art piece we may have missed or even a secret art path that I'm not able to show here.
So take the whole family to Pinto Art Gallery.  Awaken your artistic mind with a breath of fresh air.

Oh, and Pinto, that outdoor queen-sized bed as a perfect rest stop for your tired art trekkers --lovely touch! :)
