Pinto Art Museum - An Art Haven In Antipolo City


Rizal province is known for its artists and there is one place in Antipolo that I know you can find their works. ;)


Pinto Art Museum (PAM) is an assemblage of over 300 modern paintings, sculptures, and art installations by various local artists. It is located at 1 Sierra Madre St., Grand Heights, Antipolo, Rizal. Pinto, the Filipino word for door, serves as the gateway for modern and contemporary art.

PAM is a project of Silangan Foundation for Arts, Culture, and Ecology, a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Philippine arts and culture. The foundation is being led by neurologist Dr. Joven Cuanang. He, who is deeply rooted in his inclination to Filipino’s artistic prowess, has accumulated a number of artworks in his personal collection. He acquired a modest house and lot in the 70s and opened the Pinto Gallery around 2000. When he launched the gallery, he poured his own personal wealth into the museum to perform a civic duty for the Filipino people. He aims to promote education and appreciation for art and culture.
