At This 3D Art Museum In Philippines You Become A Part Of The Art

1

Here, visitors are encouraged to interact and have fun with the art pieces, taking as many photos as they want. “Art paintings are not complete if you are not with them, if you don’t take pictures with them,” Blyth Cambaya, the museum’s secretary.
