The Black Earth Art Museum
Earlier this month, I was celebrating Eastcoastlife's birthday along East Coast Road. Eastcoastlife very graciously and kindly took time to accompany to a nearby museum that was located in a red building.
I was quite into visiting museum and was curious to take a look at that museum which I have never visited before. Located at 352 Joo Chiat Road, the Black Earth Art Museum is housed in a building whose walls are painted red. That certainly will catch the attention of any passerby. It looked like a boutique hotel initially, but if one could just enter, one finds himself/herself in a non-commerical art gallery.
I learnt from Eastcoastlife and this blog named Void Deck that the Black Earth Art Museum is opened by the owner of Ho Kee Pau.
The gallery is simple and unpretentious. While I felt that there was still a limited number of art works on display at the Black Earth Art Museum, the far-sighted vision of supporting the arts scene in Singapore is definitely worth commending.
The Black Earth Art Museum is opened from Tuesdays to Sundays, from noon to 9 p.m.
