Art Installations

[NEW] Candy Pops Gumball Art Installation

Venue: Entrance of E!Avenue
Date: Till 2022
Fee: Free

Look out for the giant balls of fun at the entrance of E!Avenue. The 4m-tall Candy Pops gumball machine is a quirky art installation that features a see-through container that's filled with colourful gumballs.

Candy Pops is the third artistic project supported by the National Arts Council (NAC) and is the culmination of Downtown East's 2021 artistic endeavours, where IG-worthy day-and-night structures such as Wave Hello (by Space Objekt & Aeropalmics) and Lumi Towers (by Ultimate) took centrestage recently. All three installations, located minutes from one another, are on display till next year. Admission is free. 

Candy Pops harks back to the 70s and 80s when gumball machines were the game for children. The sight of the vintage gumball machine aims to evokes a sense of joy and nostalgia - which jolts visitors' memories of Downtown East, having transformed from a humble resort to a carnival theme park and becoming a one-stop lifestyle destination today.
