In its fifth edition, the theme of the Yellow Ribbon Community Art Exhibition 2013 is, Acceptance. As part of the Yellow Ribbon Project launched in 2004 by the former President of Singapore S R Nathan, the exhibition showcases artworks created by inmates of Changi Prison and Changi Women’s Prison. Side by side with receiving acceptance by family & friends and society, one’s self-acceptance plays a pivotal role in one’s path towards new happiness and peace of mind.
Prison inmates and local artist Mojoko used this old cell door shown in the photo as a canvas to make art on the other side of the door, see their artwork for yourself at the front lawn of Singapore Art Museum. Do also visit the exhibition in the Chapel on level 2 of the museum, adopt a piece of art or two created by talented inmates and/or pin up a yellow ribbon available at the reception of the exhibition to show your support.
It’s free admission to the appreciation journey, which runs through 28th July 2013, 10am-7pm Saturday to Thursday and 10am-9pm on Friday.
Singaporeans and Singapore permanent residents enjoy free admission to all galleries in the museum.
