While other museum strictly prohibit taking shots at their cherished old-aged treasures and relics of antiquities, this one is distinctively allowable for everyone to touch theirs, since this museum has nothing to offer, but it’s just all about 3D arts painted on walls.
This interactive 3D art museum is called Art in Island, located at Cubao, Quezon City, near Gateway Mall, Araneta Center, Ali Mall, Cubao Expo, in my beloved home country — Philippines. You can also go to Art In Island through back entrance in Cubao Expo (former Marikina Shoe Expo). From P. Tuazon Boulevard, turn to Gen. Romulo Avenue. Go straight ahead and enter Cubao Expo.
Officially opened on December 25th of 2014, this museum showcases over 50 trick art murals that were painted by a team of 18 Korean master painters who worked under this project. These murals give an illusion of depth when being viewed at a certain angle, designed as a backdrop for photo opportunities.
As far as you know, this is the largest 3D interactive art museum in Asia, in terms of total painted area.
Museum attendees can climb into paintings and take photos of their interactions. They’re free to pose anything they want, make sure you leave your footwear at the entrance before entering this art museum. It’s a must!
“Here, art paintings are not complete if you are not with them, if you don’t take pictures with them,” Blyth Cambaya, a museum employee explained to Mashable.
Since Filipinos are known to be art lovers, Yun Jae Kyoung, South Korean native and Art in Island CEO, told local media that their plan to open a 3D Art Museum was to appreciate and encourage Filipino’s gustos with taking selfies and sharing them with friends on social media.
