Do you ever feel like:
a) you’re itching to witness something new or different?
b) the city is too overcrowded and you just want to escape?
c) you need creative inspiration?
If you answered YES to any of the choices above, why not take a trip out of town to see Pinto Art Museum at Antipolo, Rizal?
Hey Kessy’s Mansy Abesamis explored the museum with her friends Mikko Sumulong, Macy Alcaraz, Dina Ledonio, Evelyn Obamos, and Mele Perla. They were all delighted to view the stunning artworks found in the different galleries—all amidst a peaceful, nature-filled setting.
An example of inspiring patterns and colors, Pinto has many open areas where you can bond and craft with your family and friends.

Macy searched for her favorite piece from the current collections.

Modern mixed media installations fill the wide spaces.

The areas found outside the seven galleries are all conducive to crafting or meditating.
Pinto Art Museum even has an in-house restaurant. The food and service are absolutely great!

After the fun-filled excursion, the group dropped by Hey Kessy in UP Town Center. Out-of-towners Evelyn and Mele—Pinays who both grew up in the States and are currently working for Pinterest—even bought some goodies that they would bring back home to San Francisco.
