On Thursday, May 18, Yuchengco Museum offers a day of free admission to all its exhibitions and galleries of the worldwide celebration of International Museum Day (IMD).
Since 1977, the International Council of Museums has organized IMD to highlight the importance of the role of museums as institutions that serve society and its development. Museums are hubs for promoting peaceful relationships between people, and their collections offer reflections of memories and representations of history.
Each gallery at the museum showcases art and creativity in a wide variety of forms, from paintings and photographs to installation art to jewelry, couture, and home furnishings. See the retrospective of Burmese jewelry designer Wynn Wynn Ong, Ryan Arbilo’s photographs of overseas Filipino workers in France, and paintings by National Artists for Visual Arts from the museum collection.
The museum is located at RCBC Plaza, corner Ayala and Sen. Gil J. Puyat Avenues, Makati. Museum hours are Monday to Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call (632) 889-1234, visit yuchengcomuseum.org, or follow @YuchengcoMuseum on social media.
