Eco-Art Sculpture Project @ Punggol Gardens

Punggol Gardens – Go Green!

Since March, SCYA has been actively involved in an eco-art project spearheaded by the Housing Development Board (HDB). With the intention to realise how spaces within the walls can be used, SCYA is tasked to conceptualize a sculpture made of recyclable materials.

As a community effort, the residents of Punggol Gardens generously donated materials to contribute to the sculpture. Youths and volunteers called the Heartland ambassadors also lend their hand in collecting materials and assisting the residents in the creative process of the sculpture making. From the SCYA side – our chairperson/curator/artist Ms. Jacquelyn Soo, Safrie Effendy (visual artist) & Denise Yap (visual artist) also supported this green project with their artistic expertise.

The unveiling of the sculpture was graced by MP Ms. Penny Low of Pasir Ris-Punggol GRC on 26 May 2012, 930 am. The unveiling gathered anticipated residents of Punggol Gardens, eager to see the finished sculpture they had helped prior and take photos with the sculpture. The finished sculpture is layered in three parts in a funky pop art stylize décor – in festive and cheerful tones of red, green and yellow.

This public sculpture resides at BLK 171A Punggol Field, lobby. The nearest train service is Coral Edge and is a stone throw from Punggol Plaza. Have you spotted it yet?
