“Story/lines” the JMG exhibition opens on Saturday, May 24

Join us! Events page here:


Story/lines is the culminating exhibition of the participants of the 9th Junior Museum Guides this year. Four young museum guides unravel their experiences during the workshop-seminar. This exhibition is made in celebration of this year’s International Museum Day.

Every object has a story to tell from its origin to its owner, from its material to its maker. They are connected one way or another from the lines that make up a shape to the tales that they tell and the thread that stitches them.

Museums are a rich source of stories. They are the setting where narratives are read and their collections a library of stories. The practice of archiving and cataloguing is like a book where you choose your own adventure. Every category leads you to a different world and time.

Story/lines trace these adventures. Inside every file is a story waiting to be discovered.

Story/lines as an exhibition also crosses paths with the current Art History Series exhibition of the UP Vargas Museum, “Drawn To Scale.” The ‘archived’ works of the JMG participants can be seen as a dialogue to the current interaction of the works of Coniconde and Amorsolo with the works of graphic art of Abrera, Concepcion, Cordero, Fernandez, Garcellano, Salvatus and Sta. Maria.

Story/lines opens tomorrow at 3pm. Everyone is invited to come. Contact us at 928-1927, or through our official Facebook page:

Workshop and exhibition are made possible with support from Bubba Lab (Marikina Heights)Azucar Boulangerie and Patisserie and Young Artists’ Studio.
