    Well you heard it right, admission to Ayala Museum is FREE on the 25th of July, but hold your horses for a moment because we’ll walk you through on the exciting things that will transpire on that day.

    Reason being for the free admission is because of the campaign Inspire Every Day! that was launched last July 19, 2014 which garnered a warm reception, hence why not do it again? And so we have Inspire Everyday 2015!

    But as the saying goes, there’s no such thing as a free lunch, and so there’s one condition for guests which is also the central theme of the campaign “Be kind.”

    Kindness is the inspiration and the motivation behind the event, particularly through inspiring artist activities and the generation of awareness for AFI’s volunteer opportunities.

    And so, to avail the free admission, guests have to fill up a registration form to join the Ayala Foundation mailing list and volunteer opportunities available for them in Ayala Foundation, Inc.

    The form can then be submitted to Ayala Museum representatives and they’ll be providing kindness currencies which serves as a ticket to enter the museum, special inspire stations, and discounts from the Ayala Museum Shop.

    Visitors will be able to enjoy the permanent exhibitions on Asian Trade Ceramic, Indigenous Philippines Textiles, Philippine Historical Events, Pre-Hispanic Gold from the Philippines, and Fernando Zobel Paintings.


    Added to that are the following:

    Beautiful Handicrafts of Tohoku: a travelling exhibition brought by the Japan Foundation Manila that showcases traditional crafts by the victims of the 2011 earthquake and tsunami.

    From Citadel to City: Juan Luna Paintings and 19th Century Prints from the BPI Collection: showing the parallels of the development of Juan Luna’s art to social realism and the rise of the city of Manila as seen in on the works display.

    Felix Laureano: First Filipino Photographer: which exhibits the work of the Panay-born pioneer.

    We’re just getting started as you’ll also have the opportunity to meet some Filipino artists:

    Valerie Chua, painter and illustrator who’ll have special inspire station of Postcard of Creativity and Kindness.

    Armi Millare, vocalist of Up Dharma Down who’ll be holding sessions.

    Leeroy New, contemporary visual artist whose wearable sculptures from the Aliens of Manila series you can wear.

    Jason Magbanua, weddings and events videographer who’ll his short film premiere about kindness.

    Flash Drawing Booth, handled by artist collective AngIlustradorngKabataan.

    *The Museum Shop, TeamManila, and Craft Carrot will also have a special mini-bazaar

     

    Music is always good, therefore you can expect an hourly performance from Asia’s first symphony orchestra, Manila Symphony Orchestra (chamber) and the showcase of Pinoy jazz from musicians of Tago Jazz Café.

     

    It will be one grandiose day celebrating the arts, history, and music inspired by kindness, don’t miss this chance!
