The Pinto Art Museum and Silangan Gardens- a feast for the eyes

A visit to the Pinto Art Museum and Silangan Gardens is always a respite from the hustle bustle of city life. It offers artistic nourishment to the soul with its art collection and jolts the senses with its splendid architecture, landscapes, flora and greens. Upon entrance, one is greeted with an expanse of lush vegetation accented by contemporary art pieces. There are rare sculptures and paintings of different genre that are not only visually appealing but also intellectually stimulating.

The Pinto Art Museum and Silangan Gardens is owned by Dr. Joven Cuanang, art patron and neurologist. It is located in Antipolo City in a hilltop town east of Manila where it overlooks the metropolis and Laguna de Bai.
