The space was straightforward. Clean, white walls, a bare concrete floor, and a very high ceiling. We actually visited for my class and the artworks by Pacita M. Abad were being featured on that day.

If you're looking for a good art day, go to MCAD. It's easily accessible by LRT and the parking area makes it really convenient to visit. Depending on the exhibit, you should definitely put this on your monthly activity cards...file under 'free.'

When I first saw those works I was so amaze by how Pacita Abad was so talented not only in doing stitches and paintings but in expressing her emotions through arts. By conquering her fears she expresses it by arts and it's just wonderful.

Mcad showcased multiple works that not only showed me plain art but it also showed me history in one of the most simple and beautiful way. It showed me different cultures and allowed me to read between the lines, or in some cases, pictures.
