You can sit, you can stand, and you can lie beside the paintings. You can roll around the space if that’s what you want to capture on camera. In Art in Island, you are allowed to do almost everything and your fun is only limited by your imagination.
There is one thing banned in Art in Island, though: shoes. Entering the museum, you will have to take off your shoes and put on slippers in order to protect the paintings from heel marks.
Slated to become the largest interactive art museum in Asia in terms of its number of paintings and photo points (the biggest in terms of floor space is still Trick Art Museum in Jeju Island, South Korea at 4,100 sqm), Art in Island is located in Cubao, Quezon City — just a stone’s throw away from Ali Mall and Cubao X. The museum can accommodate up to 2,000 visitors at a time, and it would take about two hours to complete a trip around all 10 of Art in Island’s zones — which spans from Fantasy and Religion to Animals and Masterpieces. The museum also has an in-house restaurant that serves authentic Korean cuisine, and is decorated with palettes and paint buckets used by the artists who made all of the awe-inspiring 3D art in the venue.
You can never run out of things to photograph in Manila, and Art in Island only gives us more. Do yourself a favor, schedule a visit soon and don’t miss out on this chance to be part of art — literally.
