From 29 April till 29 May, don’t miss the chance to experience the beauty of a rainbow at the Malay Heritage Centre (MHC) fountain.
Venue: Malay Heritage Centre Fountain
Date: 29 Apr - 29 May 2022, 10 am - 9 pm (closed on Mon)
Rainbows have long been held as symbols of hope, luck and new beginnings for many cultures, yet they are rare and elusive sights in the sky. This will not be the case at the Malay Heritage Centre’s (MHC) Rainbow Connection II.
Over 500 Suspended Solar Lights
Co-created by local artist Lee Yun Qin and underserved communities, the outdoor installation comprises a total of 500 suspended solar light modules made from upcycled cookie containers and solar lights. While individually unique, the modules come together to form a fantastical sight when lit up at night, scattering prismatic projections all around.
As the units gently rotate and sway in the wind, the installation seemingly comes alive through the dynamic play of shadows, lights and colours.
Co-Created With Beneficiaries from Brighton Connection
Rainbow Connection II’s light units are designed and individually painted by beneficiaries from social service agency Brighton Connection based on two themes: “In the Woods” and “In the Deep”. Uniting the community through creativity and art, the art piece is a portrayal of the social fabric that holds individuals together, painting a picture of solidarity amidst diversity. The installation encircles the MHC fountain with light and will travel to MacPherson estate and Somerset Youth Park later this year.
To welcome more visitors to enjoy the light installation at night, MHC will be extending its opening hours till 9pm from 29 April to 29 May 2022. While the centre is open from 10 am to 9 pm, we recommend coming at dusk to better enjoy the lights.
Admission is Free!
*Note that the MHC is closed on Mondays.
