Museum Collections Make Connections

ex-muscoll
Together with the rest of the world, Ayala Museum is one in the celebration of International Museum Day held every 18th of May of every year.

2014 marks the 36th year of the establishment of INTERNATIONAL MUSEUM DAY around the world. IN line with this year’s celebration, Ayala Museum offers a special exhibition of selected objects from the museum’s permanent collection to dramatize the connections established among the various subcultures in the country across the islands of our archipelago. Filipinos celebrate the uniqueness and diversity of existing local cultures that are distinctly marked by the material culture of the regions. From what is worn, to what is used, eaten, worshipped, and/or engaged in, the differences in shapes, colour, forms, and complexities of all these sum up to the multiplicity and splendour of the Philippine culture as a whole.

The exhibition will be on view at the Ayala Museum second floor lobby until August 3, 2014. For more information, email hello@ayalamuseum.org.
