The distinguished art collection of the Lopez family will soon have a new home, according to the top executive of the group’s real estate unit.
Rockwell Land Corp. president Nestor Padilla said the Lopez Museum, currently located at Benpres building in Ortigas, would be transferred to Rockwell Center, Makati, just a few steps away from The Proscenium Residences. Rockwell Land is the real estate arm of the Lopez Group.
The Lopez Museum, whose collection of books, manuscripts and maps remains unrivaled in the country, will occupy two floors for visual arts and performing arts.
The museum is well known for its collection of paintings by old masters, Juan Luna and Felix Ressurreccion Hildago, as well as works by National Artists Carlos “Botong” Francisco, Vicente Manansala, H.R. Ocampo, Cesar Legaspi and Arturo Lopez. Jenniffer B. Austria
