One of the places I’ve really taken a shine to when we went on our UK trip was Glasgow, particularly the Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum. Before our trip commenced, I already looked at all the sights and places that we were going to and even before seeing it in the flesh, I already knew that Kelvingrove was going to be a favourite of mine, and I was right!
My first glimpse of Kelvingrove.
From Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum, we caught a glimpse of the University of Glasgow.
You may think that this is the front, but this is actually the back of the museum! A popular myth about Kelvingrove is that the building was built the wrong way, while another myth is that the architect committed suicide here by leaping from one of the towers. As most myths usually are, neither of the two is true. Way back in 1901, when Kelvingrove first opened its doors to the public, the main entrance was at the back as visitors came from Kelvingrove part, but fast forward to today, most visitors now enter from the main road located at Argyle Street.
Having gone to last year’s Art Fair, I’ve been looking forward to the one that’s going to be held this year. Personally, I liked the one last year better, but there are still a lot of eye-catching pieces that made this year’s art fair interesting. Definitely worth a visit if you’re around the Greenbelt area this weekend, as Art Fair is being held at the same venue as last year – at the Link Carpark.
As soon as you’re done paying the entrance fee (Adult: 250 pesos; Student with valid ID: 50 pesos; If you’re a student studying in Makati, your entrance fee is waived), there are already art exhibits present on this floor already.
