Very Special Arts Singapore (VSA), a charity committed to offering access and opportunities for people with disabilities through the arts, is proud to announce its 16th instalment of ‘See What I See’, an Annual Art Exhibition. This year’s theme is “Journey”.
Ms Serene Sng, the artist from this year’s top prize in the Young Adult Category, is heavily inspired by Singapore’s early history. Her award-winning artwork entitled “Singapore Journey” tells the audience a story of Singapore’s pre-colonial history.
She explained the concept behind her work, “When people see my work, I want them to feel the love I have for Singapore. Before modern times, Singapore is rich in culture, of stories of Malay leaders, warriors and people with wit that can overcome obstacles. Look at how Sang Nila Utama came to Singapore, it was a long journey for him. The story of the attack of the swordfish, and many more.”
The exhibition features top entries of VSA’s 16th Annual Art Competition for Children, Youths and Adults with Special Needs. This year, it received 639 submissions from 34 schools and related organizations. Submitted entries are reviewed and judged by a panel of artists: Ms Tan Sock Fong, Mr Justin Lee, and Mr Muhammad Noh Bin Arjuna.
Venue: Forum the Shopping Mall
When: 21 - 30 Sep 2018, 10am - 10pm
