Land of the Morning Online

I stumbled upon this site (click here) while taking my usual bus ride home.

The website, courtesy of ACM, blew my mind. When I got home I viewed the site in my desktop right away.

I remember seeing this exhibit in 2010. And now I’m seeing it online – exactly how I saw it during its opening.

The “Land of the Morning” exhibit was an amazing display of Filipiniana collections sourced from different collectors and institutions back home. That was the first time I’ve ever seen a  museum abroad exhibit art and artifacts about the Philippines.

This virtual exhibit captured everything during that week long event. Its fascinating what the Asian Civilization created. They figured out that the exhibit can be recreated in a virtual setting (museums everywhere should start doing this!). So long after the displays had gone back to the “Land of the Morning”, the exhibit continues – in cyber world. And this one is open forever – more importantly – its gratis!
