Celebrations are even more meaningful when you understand the heritage behind it. Explore and appreciate Chinese art across the decades by Chinese masters like Ren Bonian, Xu Beihong, Qi Baishi as well as Singaporean artists at the Living With Ink exhibition located in the Asian Civilisations Museum. It proudly showcases the extensive collection of renowed local art collector Dr Tan Tsze Chor, comprising more than 130 paintings, porcelains and scholars’ objects.
Then, stay until evening for the Light to Night Festival 2020 where you can experience a dazzling outdoor installation by local artist Vertical Submarine, before making your way around other spots around the Civic District like National Gallery to experience the rest of the festival.
Besides insta-worthy shots, you can look forward to activities like UV body painting, interactive tours in the dark, performances and various workshops on selected dates. Plan your trip to make the most out of your day there for a fulfilling and fun time!
