    Dr. Cuanang began collecting artworks to support the careers of artists from the group The Salingpusa. Over the years, his collection grew and has amassed works from subsequent generations of artists, many of which work in the figurative tradition. His collection now numbers around 200 sculptures, paintings, and installations.

    The building itself is architecturally charming: it’s clean white structure and exterior chairs are reminiscent of Greek architecture. The museum is situated in the Silangan Gardens, a two-hectare garden complex that is home to birds and local fauna.
