The Return of the Light Festival

15 Feb

Singapore used to have an annual “light festival” downtown every year – basically a chance for artists to display some public light-based sculpture. We made a habit of going – see here – and it was always a pleasant evening out.

Of course, Covid put a quick end to that tradition. But in early 2022, even though we still had to wear masks indoors and out, the festival made a comeback. One Friday evening we renewed our tradition.  It was smaller than in years past but still quite nice.

The main thing was a series of lights projected onto the façade of one of the museums downtown. Kinda cool:

Nyan enjoyed it:

That museum, by the way, is the National Gallery, and it was open for touring, so we checked out some of the exhibits.

Afterwards we strolled along the river. In years past there’s been plenty of exhibits along here; this year, none at all. But it was still nicely lit, a pleasant stroll and a great way to end the evening.
