Our very first museum visit

Posted on Updated on

happened so much unplanned. One of Yuvan’s planned meeting with friends had to be cancelled the other day and inspired by the SMB’s I decided to bring him to the Singapore Arts Museum, right during the last week of June holidays. I was not quite sure about how he would like it, But after I showed him what’s on in the exhibition we decided to go and explore…

Here’s what we saw and what he enjoyed… The collage’s speaks volumes… so I am going to keep my descriptions short…

Mood: Yuvan was pretty excited to explore the unknown waters.. as he simply didn’t know what was in store except the knowledge that he was going to the Art Museum and a bit of peek on the brochure.

First up was Echoes-Infinity-The Forest by Shinji Ohmaki, which was not a great hit with Yuvan nor the wall murals as we went one level up, contrary to my appreciation towards it.

SAm collage 3The adjoining room had an activity to choose among three pictures, color, stamp, decorate and make your art a part of the evolving art wall, the idea which I thought was quite impressive.


SAM Collage 1 He was pretty involved as likes generally drawing, coloring and sketching but he finished the coloring and stamping quite quickly which made me worry that we may end up spending just 30 minutes in the museum 😦

Rather I was feeling so great to see his work on the Art Wall but not him 🙂

Next up, we visited The Art of Imagination by Justin Lee.

Again, the same concept, but this time drawing something on the cardboard cubes which he finished up quickly and responded “Ok, let’s go to the next one..”


Collage SAM 4 What we visited next was, Reactive Wall, Mojoko and Shang Liang where you can make sounds on a microphone and the images appear on a wall before you proportional to the speed and frequency of the voice/pitch.

He took lot of time taking turns with the children and adults present there and definitely a super hit with him..


COllage SAM3.jpg Adjoining was the Let’s Dance by Emilie Fouilloux, where he was completely taken by surprise about the fact that he could dance for a song, record and then the video gets showcased on the wall for a minute like ‘One minute Hall of Fame’. He loves dancing so another super hit and that’s the reason behind the photo taken next to the signage:)

What else did he enjoy???

The Origami leaf making and the garden itself – Grow a Garden in the Dark by Tay Bee Aye.


SAM Collage6

The Ultra colorful Squid and Dress Me Up by Justin Lee.

 SAM 28

The differently designed doughnut shaped ping pong table –Ping Pong Go-Round by Lee Wen where he made new friends and enjoyed playing together with them.

No doubt, The Reactive Wall, Let’s dance and the Ping Pong Table!!!
