Founded in 1998, The Drawing Room originally focused on exhibiting works on paper. Then, they expanded on featuring contemporary art across all mediums. Today, it represents some of the country’s established and emerging artists, often throwing them into the international creative scene. I love it here because the pieces are often affordable. Plus, the staff are always so willing to help you navigate the space.
A little farther from the usual haunts of trendy Poblacion and a little near Rockwell, Pineapple Lab is a creative hub dedicated to artists and makers of all pronouns and colors of the spectrum.
In June 2019, for instance, Pineapple Lab hosted The Lil Gay Shop, “retail experience that highlights the sparkly spectrum of magical makers within the LGBTQIA+ community.”
