A Community Project in Celebration of SG50
Singapore Tapestry – the 80 sqm (31 metres long and 2.6 metres tall) mural commissioned by LTA, is a gift to Singapore for the country's 50th anniversary. To be permanently displayed at Marina South Pier Station, the mural is a composite of the inspiration of its nearly 1,500 participants from different walks of life and stands as testament of the life of a nation and its people.
2. Based on nature, urban and economic development, and socio-cultural fabric as broad themes, participants articulated their stories on raw clay under the guidance of the lead artist and her young artists, over a period of three months. The divergent inspirations were then hand-painted, fired and assembled by the artist into a cohesive reflection of the shared experiences of Singaporeans. The resultant mural celebrates the tapestry of life in Singapore, rich in texture, diversity and colour, and united in aspiration.
