An iconic Makati spot for all things culture will temporarily close its doors at the end of this month.
The Ayala Museum, which houses ethnographic and archaeological exhibits on Filipino culture, art, and history, announced yesterday that it will be closed to the public starting June to undergo renovations.
The 15-year-old complex, which includes the museum, a heritage library, and the contemporary art gallery ArtistSpace, has become an important part of the busy Ayala commercial center. Aside from its permanent exhibitions, it also regularly highlights works by contemporary Filipino artists and holds cultural events like concerts and art workshops.
They plan to re-open sometime next year but a specific month has not been announced. In the meantime, art enthusiasts can attend their On-The-Go (OTG) events that will start in June.
These include traveling exhibits of Kisame: Visions of Heaven on Earth, Botong Francisco: A Nation Imagined, The Diorama Virtual Reality, and FHL’s Women & War. There will also be pop-up art workshops, lectures, and concerts.
The museum announced that it also plans to launch a YouTube channel soon.
Ayala Museum is at Makati Ave. cor. Dela Rosa St., Greenbelt Park, Ayala Center, Makati City
