Art in Island’s Hiwaga ng Pilipinas: An Attraction Straight Out of Your Imagination

After they introduced the fascinating 3D + Media Art Show in 2017, Art in Island, the biggest 3D Art Museum in Asia, launched their newest attraction called Hiwaga ng Pilipinas yesterday, November 11, 2018.
Hiwaga brings the different treasures of the Philippines together through the black light art that will surely amaze young and old alike.

The Hiwaga ng Pilipinas Experience

At the entrance, I was stamped with an invisible mark that came with surprise as it lightened upon my entrance to a whole new magical world brought by the attraction. As I entered the dark room, I saw the beauty in black and was surprised by thousands of stunning lights and neon colors bursting out to life.
It is quite a magical way to experience art and the Philippines’ tourist attractions, the flora, fauna, landscapes and mythical creatures, for it tricks you in a way that it is as if you are part of it as well. It is more than just a visually appealing scene because it doesn’t just awaken your senses but it shows you something straight out of your imagination.

The Launching 

The event which was held at the Central Hall of the museum started with an invocation lead by Alay sa may Kapansanan Association, Inc. (also known as AKAI). It is followed by their marketing manager and CEO welcoming and inviting the guests to witness and experience Hiwaga ng Pilipinas as they offered free access to the attraction  for the visitors that day. After a short intermission of AKAI, the visitors were lead to the entrance of Hiwaga for the ribbon cutting participated by the CEO, directors and yours truly.
