With so many skyscrapers currently standing and soon to be standing at the Bonifacio Global City commercial and business district, it is to forget that BGC has quite a few surprises to offer. One of them: an arts and culture hub in the middle of this busy district. While this hub is not as massive as venues like the Cultural Center of the Philippines, the BGC Arts Center fills the need for a place in this part of the concrete urban jungle where the humanities can thrive and be appreciated by a people who need some respite from the madness of urban living.
Art, Anime, and History at Ayala Museum
If you happen to pass by Ayala Museum recently, you may have chanced upon a massive art installation located just outside it. And if you are one of those who grew up during the Martial Law era and loved the Japanese robot animes of the 1970s, especially that certain anime called Voltes V, this artpiece should grab your attention even more. Even if you are neither of those but is someone who is at least familiar with the story of Voltes V in the Philippines, this work by Toym Imao should be of interest.
