The art exhibition to check out this weekend

This afternoon, I went for the Community heARTs exhibition at The Art House.

This is one art exhibition that I would recommend. The exhibition ends on 23 Sep 2007. Please find below some snapshots that I have taken at the exhibition.

The Community heARTs Exhibition organised by the Care Network will be held on 22nd and 23rd September 2007 (9.30am – 6pm) at The Arts House. Admission is free. This exhibition champions the cause of unlocking the second prison, which is in line with the Yellow Ribbon message. At the same time, this event acts as a platform for inmates (& ex-offenders) to showcase their artistic talents.

I think the exhibition is very thoughtfully curated. I very much like the idea of how the 5 phases of rehabilitation weaves together to form the main theme of the exhibition.

I particularly like the fact that guided tours to exhibition are made available for visitors. I have found the guided tour to be interesting and insightful. My words of thanks to I for giving me a lovely guided tour of the exhibition. According to the brochure, there will be guided tours scheduled at 9.45 a.m., 11.45 a.m., 1.45 p.m. and 4.15 p.m. tomorrow.

In addition, if you like any of the works, you can even adopt it. All proceeds from the adoption will be donated to the beneficiary - Very Special Arts Singapore (VSA). Therefore, your support will help inmates & ex-offenders make a contribution back to the society.

If you have nothing in particular to do tomorrow, this is an event that you should check out.
