The Singapore Youth Festival Art and Crafts Exhibition opens today at the Singapore Art Museum.
“The annual Singapore Youth Festival Art and Crafts Exhibition is a national school event that aims to showcase artistic talents of students and promote art appreciation in schools. Co-organised by the Ministry of Education and The National Art Gallery, Singapore, the 2010 exhibition features selected artworks from secondary schools, Integrated Programme schools, junior colleges and centralised institutes.
This year, the theme of the exhibition Torch of Friendship exemplifies our youths’ desire to propagate what is best for oneself as well as others through the metaphor of the torch. The torch represents the ideals of the Olympics. It connotes friendship, a harmonious relationship of mutual respect and trust, and signifies the inner drive to do one’s best and to improve oneself.”
The exhibition runs through August 22, 2010.
