This morning at the 1F West Wing Gallery: AG Saño discussed marine conservation in "Sandali Lang Po! Tahanan Po Namin Ito." This talk was made possible through the DALOY exhibition by Project Bakawan. #MarineEcology #contemporaryartandnature Ms. Portia Placino's Art Studies 1 class visits the museum for a lecture in Art History. #VargasVisits Taos-puso ang pakikiramay ng Vargas Museum sa mga naiwan ni Eduardo “Mang Ed” G. Makiling Sr. na sumakabilang-buhay nitong Pebrero 7, 2016. Matagal na panahong naglingkod si Mang Ed sa pamilya ni Jorge Vargas. Kasama siya nang ilipat ang Koleksiyong Vargas mula sa estado ng mga Vargas sa Kawilihan sa Mandaluyong papunta sa Unibersidad ng Pilipinas noong 1987. Mula noon, naging kawani na siya ng museo, katuwang ang maraming manggagawang dumating at lumisan sa loob nang mahigit sa dalawang dekada. Naging bahagi si Mang Ed ng ilang daang eksibisiyon, aktibidad na pansining at pangkultura, at pang-araw-araw na daloy ng trabaho sa museo. Patunay sa kanyang kasipagan ang kanyang parangal bilang Natatanging Kawani na iginawad sa kanya ng Philippine Association of Museums, Inc. ilang taon ang nakaraan. Mapagkakatiwalaan, matapat, may pagkukusa at malasakit – ilan lamang sa mga katangian ni Mang Ed na sisikapin naming ipagpadayon sa aming gawain. 
Sa mga nais magpahatid ng dasal at tulong at para malaman ang detalye ng lamay at libing, mangyaring makipag-ugnayan sa amin simula sa Martes sa 928-1927 o vargasmuseum@gmail.com. 
Hanggang sa muli, Mang Ed! ****
Ang larawan at ang personal na tala (sa ibaba) ay mula kay Dominic Mangila sa kanyang eksibisiyon sa Vargas noong Nobyembre 2015: 
Mang Ed taken around 7 in the morning at Vargas. 
When I heard that he had been working at Vargas for so many years, I wanted to take a photograph of him doing a gesture that he had done thousands (or perhaps in a million) times for many years. I wanted to capture the beauty of the act of his dedication to paying attention to the surface of the glass as he would pause to inspect closer if dirt or dust was wiped away. I found it to be a very 'painterly' gesture. If my exhibition or art has a purpose at that point, I wanted it to at least record something that was beautiful and poetic - which I found in the gesture of Mang Ed as he navigated around the glass panels of Vargas. It was a constant art form/performance/act taking place for many years before the museum door opened. And I felt it would be awesome for the audience to see that gesture captured in photography... It's a gesture th Students from the Holy Family School of Quezon City, Inc. visited the museum yesterday for their English for Academic and Professional Purposes class. #VargasVisits
