UP Vargas Museum

UP Vargas Museum, in cooperation with The Center for Art, New Ventures, and Sustainable Development (CANVAS) and with support from Panta Rhea Foundation and Blanc Gallery, presents Tumba Tumba Children’s Museum of Philippine Art on 19 June, Tuesday, 4pm at the 1F and 3F Galleries of the museum.

Tumba Tumba Children’s Museum of Philippine Art is CANVAS’ proof of concept exhibit that transforms the Vargas Museum into a study of an actual operating children’s museum complete with a museum shop.

Three new books that will also be launching during the exhibition reception (Ipapasyal Namin si Lolo written by Genaro Gojo Cruz and illustrated by Arvi Fetalvero, Ang Aklatang Pusa written by Eugene Evasco and illustrated by Jared Yokte, and Renato Barja’s Children’s Stories, a catalogue based on painter-sculptor Jojo Barja’s art and notes from the stories he gathered from children during his trips) will have dedicated sections that cater to interactive spaces for children.

Abubot, a special show made possible with partnership with Resurrection Furniture, will be part of the exhibition. It will feature art works made out of found objects by participating artists such as Aze Ong, Sergio Bumatay III, Art Sanchez, Renz Baluyot, Liza Flores, and more.

Interactive installations by Elmer Borlongan, Pam Yan Santos, and Daniel dela Cruz, two murals by Archie Oclos, and a rainbow installation and a scale model presentation of the future site of CANVAS’ Children’s Museum of Philippine Art by the architectural firm Arkisens will also be showcased in the exhibition.

Tumba Tumba Children’s Museum of Philippine Art runs until 27 July.

The Center for Art, New Ventures and Sustainable Development (CANVAS) promotes greater awareness and appreciation for Philippine art and culture principally through exhibitions and projects that not only showcases artworks from some of the best young contemporary Filipino artists around, but also lead to the publication of books, prints, and other merchandise that make these artworks more accessible to more people.
