Airs & Graces Art Exhibition @ Millenia Walk

| |
Hi Huneybees,

Last week we were at the VIP reception of Airs & Graces art exhibition at Millenia Walk. Millenia Walk’s parent company, Pontiac Land Group has always been committed to supporting the arts scene, previously they have turned The Ritz-Carlton, Millenia Singapore into a contemporary art museum and now I am excited about this new art experience inside a shopping mall!

Defying the conventional expectations of private art exhibitions, Art Stage Singapore transforms Millenia Walk into an instant contemporary public art museum. From 1 June to 7 July 2013, the mall offers a unique shopping experience to buoy up the much-awaited holiday and shopping season.
“We are delighted to partner the Art Stage Singapore in the ‘Airs & Graces’ exhibition. This engaging exhibition demonstrates our continued support towards developing a vibrant contemporary art scene here in Singapore. We certainly look forward to sharing and celebrating the inspiring experience with all our visitors at Millenia Walk,” said Mr Tan Boon Tuck, Senior Vice-President of Millenia Private Limited.

Featuring an impressive cast of renowned international and regional artists, the cocktail reception was graced by Dick Lee as the guest-of-honour. Attendees at the cocktail reception were treated to ‘live’ art exhibition, sand art performance and lots of champagne and wine – fine art go well with fine wine!

“In the marbled Temple of Materalism shine inspiring works of art, illuminating our existence and urging us to reflect on life, its meaning and ourselves, showing us that charm, beauty and creativity are as essential to us as the air we breathe.” – Lorenzo Rudolf, Fair Director of Art Stage Singapore.
