It is the newest art space in the metro that features “SiningSaysay: Philippine History in Art,” an exhibit that visually chronicles our colorful history.
“Sining Saysay: Philippine History in Art” is a product of a five year collaboration among University of the Philippines, the UP Alumni Association and the Araneta Center. It is a milestone exhibit that depicts the Philippine history in 30 large thematic paintings.
It consists of a main exhibition hall and a smaller secondary exhibit area that easily converts into an events room ideal for drawing/painting sessions, artist talks or film screenings.

“What I like about working here is the fact that it feels like my own cocoon. I’ve got my job up a high rise, and, down below, there are plenty of places to eat. I’ve got game at my favourite shop in Gateway Mall that I frequent, and I’ve caught a concert or two with the girlfriend – all without leaving the Center. And because the MRT is so accessible, commuting has not been a problem, because with traffic these days... ooof!”
“My parents grew up around here. I’ve grown up with an affinity with the past. The history here is unbelievable. The first mall in the country rose here, Ali Mall, where now you have satellite offices of government services – I can’t say enough about how convenient it was when I had to accompany my daughter who filed an SSS application. These days, convenience is king.”
“I’m all for those new developments but I really like how contained the New Farmers Plaza seems, like you can find everything there and at really low prices. My husband discovered these amazing Marikina made leather boots! I bought so many things for my kids there, too, and it didn’t break my wallet. It also makes me happy seeing small business operators thriving.”
