Ateneo Art Gallery
The Ateneo Art Gallery - widely recognized today as the first museum of Philippine modern art - showcases works by postwar Filipino artists donated to the Ateneo de Manila University from 1959 to 1961 by the late Fernando Zóbel de Ayala (1924-1984). An internationally renowned painter and art scholar, Zóbel had intended his donation to be the start of a permanent Philippine contemporary collection for the University's students in the liberal arts. To house and display it temporarily, spaces in Bellarmine Hall were converted into a gallery which was inaugurated on August 19, 1960. In 1967 the museum moved to more spacious quarters on the Rizal Library ground floor where it has remained ever since.
