Living art spaces
Almost anywhere you turn, no matter the time of day, there’s something to catch your interest, even spark ideas.
9 am: Rush hour speed-walk
On the way to the office, pass through the many bemuraled underpasses along Ayala Avenue, each tunnel covered in fantastic, symbolic works by some of our finest local artists. If you have a couple of minutes to spare, identify as many street art tags as you can too.
12:45 pm: Post-lunch breather
Whether you’ve brown-bagged your mid-day meal or dined in any of Greenbelt’s eating hotspots, feel more settled before heading back to the office by strolling through Greenbelt Park, where the landscaped foliage serves as a backdrop to Impy Pilapil’s wire installations.
3 pm: Coffee run
Give your eyes a break from the white-hot glare of the computer screen. Have your jolt of caffeine at the Washington SyCip Park in Legazpi Village or the Jaime Velasquez Park in Salcedo Village and let your gaze travel over the open spaces’ life-sized installations.
5 pm: Post-work wind down
Instead of joining the mad rush to get home, wait out traffic in the calm, hushed environment of a museum. Almost bookending the stretch of Ayala Avenue are two world-class art spaces—the Ayala Museum and the Yuchengco Museum— each housing permanent collections of classic pieces and curated showcases of contemporary works.
