Get to know the contemporary art scene in Negros on this half-day tour which will bring you to museums and galleries in Bacolod. You will visit six local attractions that showcase modern art, namely Kapitana Gallery at Balay ni Tana Dicang, Safe House Theater, Museo de Lasalle, Orange Project, Lim Guan Art Studio, and Onse Coffee. Included in this 5-hour tour are services of a local driver and guide, entrance fee to attractions, and transfers with pick up and drop off points within Bacolod City.

Kapitana Gallery is your first stop. Situated in Balay ni Tana Dicang, it is the ancestral home of the Alunan-Lazires of Negros, a family from a prominent household dating back to the Spanish colonial period. The centuries-old home is now a museum that houses both old and modern art. Afterward, it time to proceed to a local cinema with a seating capacity for 30 people called the Safe House Theater. This is where up and coming Negrense film directors show their films.

Also part of the tour is a visit to Museo de Lasalle, a museum located inside the University of St. La Salle campus that houses a sizable collection of religious artifacts. You’ll also have the chance to immerse in the local art district when you proceed to the Orange Project, where well-regarded Filipino artists display their work, some of which include murals and installations by the likes of Guenivere Decena and Antipas Delotavo. 

Another must-see destination is the Lim Guan Art Studio, which is where personalized caricature portraits are drawn by artist Lim Guan. For a minimum fee, the studio offers a painting lesson about various mediums using charcoal, oil, acrylic, or watercolor painting techniques. Coffee and light snacks will be served at Onse Coffee, an artist-run hub, and a pioneer in promoting Bacolod’s cafe culture.
