Not your usual art museum, Pinto Art Museum feels like a huge garden with galleries. Despite how beautiful the place is, we didn’t feel the ambience that much.
I’ve been telling Gerald to visit the museum last year, when I see some friends go here and it looks really beautiful. We tried to go on the third week of January but laziness hit us, we just strolled around the mall. Haha. Thankfully on our second attempt by the end of January, we finally made it!
Pinto Art Museum is really huge, at 1.3 hectares according to the map given to us. Once you step inside, you wouldn’t think there are galleries around because all I see are greens and whites and I would even think this is a garden or probably a resort, with a Greek theme.
It happened that I wore a white polo shirt and off-white shoes. Too much white?
I am not really that interested with art so I wanted to walk fast and get out because I like nature more. But Gerald seems interested, he takes a few seconds reading through the descriptions of paintings and works.
Unexpectedly, Gerald doesn’t seem to be in the mood for taking photos. He’s even frustrated with his shots and kept on asking “What’s wrong with me?”. And I would say, “It’s okay, maybe you’re just not in the mood. Let’s get out of here.” That’s why we only had a few photos around, also because I don’t see the point of taking photos of the paintings and crafts.
We spent around two hours (which include few minutes of rest) inside Pinto Art Museum. We didn’t speak that much but while we’re on our way back, he asked me if I’m tired. I answered yes. He was a little shocked with my answer because he thought I was satisfied. I would usually answer excitingly, “Yes, but I had fun!” It turns out Gerald feels the same. He thinks maybe because of how quiet it is and the other people around that you have to consider in taking photos. Or maybe we’re just both not in the mood that time.
I don’t know, but I can’t say I have enjoyed the trip. I’ve read a lot of blogs about Pinto Art Museum and it seems like they all had fun and even recommended the place. I’m sure it’s only me, since I’m not into art anyway. If you do love art, Pinto Art Museum is surely one of the places you need to visit because there are a lot that you may find interesting.
It’s your turn!
