The Ayala museum is the home of the Philippine’s art, history and culture. It is where collections of iconic paintings, historic dioramas and historic costumes are displayed. Our class had a fieldtrip to the Ayala museum to find inspiration and to observe the vintage filipinana costumes. I haven’t been in a museum since grade-school, so I got very excited when I arrived there. Before we went upstairs, where the main exhibits are, we walked around the lobby area where there are pictures from Cory Aquino’s memorial and articles of bloodstained clothing that Ninoy wore. Also in the ground floor is an exhibit of modern art, which I find very interesting. We went to the top floor where The Gold of the Ancestors are displayed. I really liked how the entrance is very dramatic, and how the lighting effects evokes mood when you step in the door. We watched a film about gold which I enjoyed, after that we are free to walk around. I noticed that almost all of the gold displays are very thin and hollow, almost foil like. I really liked the jewelleries especially. I noticed how some have similar patterns and designs, I saw spiral triangular and dotted patterns a lot, maybe the ancient goldsmiths carry the same techniques. Outside the gold exhibit is where the costumes are in. I noticed some pictures of Damian Domingo’s paintings from our lectures before, below those pictures are displays of actual clothing. The fabrics are really thin and delicate, and the embroideries are very intricate, you can tell its hand sewn. Patterns are very simple, and I noticed many of the pieces share the same pattern. I wanted to touch some of the clothes but everything was behind glass. On the floor below we viewed historic paintings from some of the greatest Filipino artist. I was drawn into the paintings of Juan luna, because I am more familiar with his works, especially the Woman with Manton painting, which was shown in class. I was even tempted to touch a little bit

    Little did we know, when we were sent on a field trip to the Ayala Museum, what we would see there. All that we were told was that it was an "educational field trip" and something to do with Filipiniana.net's advocacy of anything and everything Filipino. So, we were really in for a treat when we set foot on the fourth floor of the museum and a short film started to play the moment we stepped inside the sliding doors. "Gold of Ancestors: Crossroads of Civilization", it began, and went on to show some…

    I had the pleasure of visiting The Miami Art Museum and was very impressed by what I encountered and viewed. I have never found interest in art until I got to see the museum.

In this venture, I viewed the most beautiful artwork I had ever seen, observed interesting non European/North American art, was alarmed by the most disturbing works , explored a breath taking exhibition, and actually found work that…
