I learned so much visiting the Lopez Museum and Library. The place where the personal collection of the late Lopez Group founder Eugenio H. Lopez, Sr.can be found. More than a collection it is a heritage of Philippine Art and Culture. I can say that seeing the artworks behind this museum is worth doing because it is an extension of learning the Philippine history and how it has evolved into a trusted and well-loved Philippine institution.
I was surprised to learn that Philippine Street Art/Graffiti is now exhibited in museums such as The Lopez Museum. Because it is considered as an illegal form of art and often labeled as vandalism. But when I saw the works of Pilipinas Street Plan, I felt undying admiration for the artists, because I am a fan of pop culture. I am glad that this kind of art is now being recognized as Filipino culture.
The exhibit is called " Loob at Labas " and the group is composed of Mon Guinto, Gang Badoy, Gerhard Bandiola and Tammy David.
The prisoners are engaged in creating some artworks and displays made from recycled materials.
Here are some of the works that I liked in the museum :
Espanya Y Filipina
is a work of Juan Luna showing the friendship of Spaniards and Filipinas.
