Explore MyPhilippines: Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City

 Bag of Beans, Tagaytay City Bag of Beans is one of the must visit places in Tagaytay City. I am witness to how Bag of Beans has grown from a small coffee shop to an established dining place that it is now today.  Bag of Beans has also opened several branches along the Tagaytay City tourist stretch with six branches as of this writing. Bag of Beans caters as events venue and is one of the preferred wedding venues in Tagaytay City. Bag of Beans is also now into Bed and Breakfast accommodation. For this particular visit, me and my Family came for lunch. The food is really nice! Of course coffee and dessert after lunch is a must!  It was definitely worth the travel!

2nd Destination: Pinto Art Museum




'Pinto' is a Tagalog or Filipino word for 'Door'.
Enter and you will be richly rewarded!



The next destination was Pinto Art Museum. Pinto Art Museum is a contemporary art space in Antipolo City.

This place is host to different art works. The Pinto Art Museum has also hosted several major art exhibits and shows.  

This is a big surprise for me and my family. We did not expect this very rich exhibit of art works. 

The exhibits are amazing! You should see for yourself to enjoy the experience firsthand.

 

Here are some pictures of the art works on display.
The art works in Pinto Art Museum are mixtures of different medium, form and substance. 
These are very very interesting art pieces.



I personally like the modern sculptures by Daniel de la Cruz.
 I have labelled here most of his art works.
I have also included a section about him which I got from the internet. 
The article was an interview by Christiane L. de la Paz. 
Part of the interview I posted below together with the website where you can read the full article.

About
Daniel de la Cruz's Touchstone
of Modern Sculpture

by: Christiane L. de la Paz


January-February 2011-- Many of the artists who emerged in 2006 found themselves pursuing a career in painting. But Daniel de la Cruz, who turned forty that year, actively turned his thoughts towards his dream of becoming a sculptor and debuted his figural sculptures at the Ayala Museum, reaping unbelievable success and adulation. Because of his talent and deepened commitment to his art braided with his professional training as an accomplished product designer and fascination with the creative possibilities of metals, this led him to produce sculptures of graceful and powerful rotund figures of women, eventually becoming his signature style. His searing body of works is viewed with anecdotes, childhood memories, studio notes, fairy tales, fantasy, myths and legends and is thought of as chronicles of his intellectual and practical journeys. Half a decade later, as the range and quality of de la Cruz’s art practice have become acceptable to the art viewing public, he continues to nurture his growing menagerie of works to engulf in the memory and imagination of hard to please critics, curators and collectors. Today, many of his seminal pieces now grace the homes and offices of important private collections and continues to receive series of commissioned works. In this January 2011 feature, Daniel de la Cruz draws a warm and easy going portrait of himself, his family and educational background, his early professional career, the dynamics of his working method and throws a floodlight on how his ever-growing dedication to his art changed his life.
