It is no wonder why Benedicto Reyes Cabrera (or BenCab) was conferred the Order of National Artist for Visual Arts by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo in 2006.
When Cabrera established the BenCab Museum, his intention was to bring the arts closer to the people, especially to Filipinos who are considered to be an artistic people by nature.
He also wanted to house the masterpieces of acknowledged Filipino masters and other rising contemporary artists.
The following areas in the museum are: BenCab Gallery (which features the artist's own masterpieces); Cordillera Gallery, (which showcases tribal artifacts and native crafts); Philippine Contemporary Art Gallery 1 and 2 (which shows Cabrera's other works of art); and the Maestro Gallery (which houses selected works by Aguinaldo, Chabet, Edades, Joya, Legaspi, Luz, Magsaysay-Ho, Sanso, Zobel, etc.); Erotica Gallery (which contains paintings, drawings, and sculpture with an erotic theme); Print Gallery, (which highlights vintage maps, prints, autographs, and postcards on the Philippines); Sepia Gallery (which serves as a venue for changing exhibitions); Patio Salvador (an open terrace used for receptions and sculpture shows); and Larawan Hall (which is used as a function room for art workshops, meetings, seminars, art films showings, and other activities).
Eco wonder
Cabrera's and other Filipino masters' artworks and sculpture may be more than enough to astonish or inspire.
However, there is actually more to experience in this not-so-hidden gem in northern Philippines.
Just below the BenCab Museum one will find a farm and a garden. This is where Cabrera and native workers grow herbs, strawberries, sweet potatoes, coffee, ornamentals and seasonal vegetables.
