Boat Painting Community Art
Admire and kick back on the flotilla of hand-built boats designed by BetaBeta! A symbol of unity in diversity, these boats run the gamut from junkboats and sampans to towboats and cargo ships. Made in collaboration with Panelogue and The Merry Men Works, these boats will feature illustrations by Lim Kai Lee, Amanda Ong, Eugene Lim, Paula Pang, Edison Teo, and 8EyedSpud. But wait — there’s more! We’ve left some of the boats uncoloured, so you can grab a paintbrush and let your imagination run loose. Mix colours, paint outside the lines, and unleash your inner Picasso by adding your mark to these boats. If painting’s not up your alley, simply share a seat with a fellow stranger, snap a kooky photo, or use it as a resting spot while you soak in the celebratory atmosphere.
8 March, 5 - 8pm; 9 and 10 March from 11am - 1pm and 2.30 - 4.30pm.
