Defacing an artwork is a big no-no but that’s not the case with Sk(r)etch, where you’re encouraged to do so. To be more precise, you’re encouraged to scratch off a part of the paint to reveal a mosaic of bright colors and patterns that come together to tell Singapore’s story. So be sure to bring along your child (and by that we also mean your inner child)!

7.30 pm – 12.00 am

S.C.U.L.P.T by Yann Nguema is more than just a beautiful projection mapping accompanied with a soundscape. Through simple laser beams, you can actually manipulate the form and appearance of the artwork, morphing it into another form! Little ones can have fun with the artwork as it pushes the bounds of their imagination!
