Museo Orlina

While we were going around Tagaytay City, I spotted a sign to Museo Orlina which was just a few meters away from the entrance of the subdivision where we were staying. Needless to say, I convinced our group into going. 😛

I was  just so happy to have finally visited Museo Orlina showcasing Orlina’s work of glass sculptures, as well as on display, were outstanding works from equally talented Filipino artists. I am sorry not sorry to bombard this post with images from the museum which I hope you’d get a chance to visit to be inspired. With the Taal Lake as the background of the this house turned art sanctuary, it was just perfect!

Can you just imagine the hours put into each sculpture? It is just amazing!

Do you know that greenery is the pantone color of the year? Haha. But seriously, I am drawn to the emerald sculptures.

Outside the garden is littered with installations from other local artists.

Under the amphitheater is the garage where another renowned Filipino artist, Bencab painted his Sabel series on a Volkswagen Beetle. See the eerie hand on the wheel?

It was fortuitous too because a couple of days after, we were headed to the Philippines summer capital, Baguio City, and visited Bencab Musuem. That post will be up soon.
