About Jumalon Museum

Art may be described in its broadest sense as a way to present, describe, and communicate the artist perception of the cosmos. Its ability to influence and move a viewer to action is entirely dependent on the viewer’s ability and readiness to respond to the artist presentation. The feelings that the artist moves or provokes in the viewer are dependent on individual experience.
Artistic works have their share of its in the dynamics of society. Juan Luna’s, Spolarium evokes the spirit of Filipino nationalism and arouse the dream of independence from colonial power.
The exhibit takes you on a journey of art used as a mode of communication. To arouse not only the aesthetic feeling, but also the moral condition of today’s environment, a natural heritage. The medium of this journey are the works of lepidopterist artist, conservation advocate Julian Jumalon.
He takes you to have a rare glimpse of how an intact forest environment looks-like through the assembly of butterflies, he regales you with his scientific knowledge of indigenous insects in selected classic folksongs. He will show you how a butterfly who ceased to exist in nature continues to live on a canvass. The scientist in him will take you on an excursion of the monkeys’ view of human beings.
Given the wanton disregard for the conservation of the natural heritage, was Ondoy nature’s revenge or the result of human action?
The value of an art work is determined by its capacity to transcend the limits of its chosen medium, to strike some universal chord through the skill of the artist and its accurate reflection in what is termed the zeitgeist.
