Singapore Art Museum (SAM) is arranging a series of engaging arts programmes and exhibitions, both physical and digital ones as a way to instill the love for art among youths. Among the programmes are the community-based initiative Art in the Commons: Data Visualising Jurong and SAM's first ever virtual exhibition Between the World and Us - A Think! Contemporary Primary School Virtual Exhibition, perfect for families with young school children.

For the former, SAM is partnering up with Science Centre Board to explore community interests within the Jurong district. Through unique artworks by Debbie Ding, it will highlight the changing identity of Jurong - from an industrial estate to a vibrant hub of industry, commerce and residential units. As for the latter exhibition, in partnership with various primary schools, this first-ever virtual event will exhibit 18 artworks on the diverse experiences of Primary Four students during the global pandemic. This event will be held from 18 November 2021 until 31 March 2022.

Other than interesting exhibitions, parents and children can play along with their imagination and create their own art through a series of child-friendly art workshops. Another exhibition that is a must-visit for all art lovers is The Explorer Project! featuring a new imaginative comic inspired by the iconic sculpture, The Explorer. The idea of the comic comes from the relocation of the sculpture from the museum to the Science Centre Singapore.

Not only will they display this comic but to attract more young audience, there will be accompanying programmes which include online talks and workshops on illustration, interactive story-telling and sculpture making through Zoom.

Singapore Art Museum is one of the world's most important public arts institutions to house Southeast Asian contemporary art and as a non-profit organization, we should support our local arts museum to let it thrive for future generations. Their new series of exhibitions and activities are not only engaging but also educational for the youth to open their minds about arts and technology.

Do check out these virtual programmes and activities by SAM during the school holidays to have a lovely and fun time with your family ☺️
