Art in Island: Be Part of an Art

Some museums will allow you to take photos, some will not. However, there are plenty museums that will encourage you take unlimited photos, one example is the 3D Art museum located in Cubao, Quezon City named ART IN ISLAND.   
Art in Island was founded by Yun Jae Kyoung and his partners, with 14 3D artists from Korea working on all the stunning paintings in the museum that you can touch, interact with, and be part of it.
The 3D Museum in Cubao is actually one of the biggest 3D interactive art museums in the world, with lifelike wall-to-floor artworks surely; you’ll have great time with whomever you bring with you!

Getting there:
From Camanava/Novaliches/Sm North
Ride a bus or the MRT to get to Cubao Farmers. From there, walk towards the jeepney terminal to Rosario, which is a few meters behind Smart Araneta Coliseum and in front of Mercury Drug. Ride the jeepney going to Rosario-Citibank and tell the driver to drop you off at Art in Island along 15th Avenue.

Art in Island is unlike any museum, you can interact with the paintings and take LOTS of visually-stunning photos. So, here are some tips for you to get the full experience:

Leave your shoes and bring extra socks
Technically, you need shoes to go to places, but once you enter Art in Island you need to leave your shoes, wear your socks or go barefoot. The 3D museum doesn’t allow shoes inside to protect the paintings since you are interacting with many ceiling-to-floor paintings, you need to remove them, but if you don’t want to go barefoot you can wear your socks, you can also bring your own bedroom slippers at the entrance. But if you forgot one, there are socks and slippers for sale at the entrance.

Take your time
Here at Art in Island, there are over 180 3D Paintings covering 2 floors.  To fully explore the whole place you have to make time for at least 2-3 hours. Don’t rush! You can stay longer if you like.

Be creative & imagine your shots
Here's our tip: Since the paintings are in 3D, imagine how you would look like if you're in that art. Unleash your creativity and fun side! Through this, you'll get to have an idea for your poses and tell an amazing story! 

Pose for the Part
Now that you have an idea of how you'll be posing, it's time to be one with the art! Some paintings feature underwater scenes, a giant cat, a giant chair, and like the image above, a creepy creature wandering in the dark. Strike a pose and be seamless with the painting! 

Find the Photo-point
Regardless of how creative your pose is, the key point in this museum is on how you take your photo. Check out the different angles or a vantage point where the art will stand out and at the same time your friend or family will look so immersed in the scene. It's also what Art in Island called "Photo-point" or to make the final photo to look more natural.
Are you tempted to go? Art in Island is open Tuesday –Thursday & Sunday at 09:30-20:30, Friday - Saturday 09:30-21:30. However, they are closed during Mondays.

Ticket Prices costs PHP 500.00 for adults, PHP 400.00 for students, senior citizens and PWDs (Don’t forget to bring your ID to avail the discount.) Children below 3 feet and birthday celebrants are free! An additional PHP 200.00 if you want to enter their Hiwaga Art Zone.

Now here are short reminders for the visitors: 
1. No Food & Drinks. If you got hungry or thirsty you can drop by at their restaurant at the first floor
2. You can re-enter again if you’d like.
3. Turn off your camera flash, since it will affect the illusion that the 3D paintings bring.
4. Bring a jacket or a cardigan it might get cold during the tour
5. No tripod.
6. No Pets.

And lastly don’t forget to HAVE FUN!
