Fine Arts

As I had an assignment that required research at museums, I decided to find the sources at Fine Arts Museum.
Located at 97 Pho Duc Chinh, Ho Chi Minh city, the museum was built in the 80s or 90s (As I remember) by Saigon authorities. They showcase artifacts, artworks, paintings (most are from Southern Vietnam) from the ancient to postmodern era. It's true that I looked for the taste more than the appearance. I appreciate how the artists have flowed themselves in their brushstrokes, how they have illustrated their lives and our lives in their masterpieces. It can be seen that the purports in those paintings have tremendously changed. You know, life changed and people changed chronologically.


 
Leaving Fine Arts museum and moving on to the next destination. 
There is an alley called "Art Arcade" on Dong Khoi street where some freelance artists sell their products. Following this alley you will reach a stair, climbing up and there are various of coffee shops and stores. Surprise!

My sister and I had breakfast at L'Usine after our visit to Fine Arts museum. It locates on the first floor of the Art Arcade. Not only food is served, L'Usine also sells home decor, clothes and other cool stuff. A fun fact that every place I visit that day, they all displayed paintings.


 

 


What is your favorite museum?

  4. This is a great post as it encourages me to visit a museum as in go inside and look. I haven't done that for quite sometime now although my work is next to the Museum of Sydney and Museum of Contemporary Art yet I haven't been inside. Maybe I should go there one of these days, thanks to your post.

  10. My favorite museum here in the Philippines is the Ayala Museum. A mix of history and modern culture. I can't wait to go here since I'm travelling to Vietnam on September! :D
