Singapore Art Week: Public Art Tours

Description

Embark on a guided walking tour of Singapore’s impressive collection of public art in the civic district. Explore a selection of these striking, often whimsical works that go largely unnoticed by the general public.

The tour will feature prominent Singaporean artists such as Cultural Medallion winners Han Sai Por and Chong Fah Cheong, alongside a few world-famous artists such as Botero and Dalí. These monumental sculptures are a both part of Singapore's distinctive character and a major source of civic pride.

Singapore's wealth of public art is also a great excuse to get out and enjoy the city in all its aesthetic glory. On this this walking tour, get acquainted speedily with Singapore’s most prominent landmarks, like Marina Bay Sands, Esplanade, and the Fullerton Hotel.


In partnership with:
Public Art Trust - an initiative by the National Arts Council to encourage Singaporeans to embrace art around their urban environment.
