We had previously explored other museum as well and enjoyed our time there. As a result we had high expectation for the event.

Our first stop is the Learning Gallery. The learning gallery is SAM's permanent exhibition dedicating to presenting artworks from selected museum collection base on contemporary art. It is suppose to nurture appreciation in arts and is targeted at youth. The current exhibit is People and Places ( ends 31st Dec) featuring 20 South East Asia artwork.

The art pieces are visually interesting and appeals to the younger audience. However I may be a little to young to understand the themes of identity , urbanisation and globalisation.
Suffice to say, I had more interest in touching the exhibits ( which is not allowed ) than to admire them.

There was another exhibit called Panorama. It features art from contemporary Asia leaning towards social and political overtones.

The letter also reminded Daddy of the letters Grandpa wrote to him when Grandpa was posted outstation for work decades back. Grandpa was never someone who is open with his emotions, yet within the letter , what was written was something that Daddy appreciates. It goes to show that absence does make a heart grow fonder. Some thoughts are meant to be pen down rather than spoken for one to understand the other.
Seeker of Hope : Works by Jia Aili
Back to the museum on a lighter note, these visually stunning works by Jia Aili was a welcoming sight in comparison to the gloom of the Panarama exhibit. To show how epic such art works were, we decided to have some fun and take some photos next to it.
In all honesty , probably not in the next few years. The works were too advance for our age to appreciate and understand. Perhaps a visit to the National Museum of Singapore or the Singapore Philatelic would be more age-appropriate for us.
