Happy Place, Happy Space: Light to Night Festival 2022

One of my most anticipated art festivals in Singapore is the Light to Night: for several weeks in the year, I get to combine two of my beloved past-times: running & admiring art.

We started our run at Parliament House, greeted by stunning cloud formations saying goodnight to the sun.

One of my favourite installations of the evening: Lumba at Esplanade Park, over looking Marina Bay Sands

Flight, set against the National Gallery

Feature photo was also taken in this large field, called The Padang.

Light projections on the Victoria Theatre & Concert Hall, created by students from Nanyang Polytechnic, School of Design & Media. I note that these art skins are created by students this year; previously designed by international & local artists.

It’s also Singapore Art Week; festivities began last week and will continue through next week. Some exhibitions will run till early February. So lots of art fun!

  1. Oh wow!
    This is so amazing. Seeing a night being light up in such an artful way is such a wonderful experience. Refreshes the mind and soul entirely.
    Thank you so much for sharing these with my challenge, Ju-Lyn πŸ™‚

  2. I love these art events! So unfortunate that several of them in my local were canceled over the past years for pandemic, but glad to see the world somewhere hold them😊 Enjoy every gorgeous art, Ju-Lyn❀️

    1. I hear you – so many things are cancelled either by the organizers, or by participants themselves. We are actually still very selective with what we attend (and are still practicing self-imposed social isolation) – arts events, especially if they are outdoors, are a priority for us.

    1. Hey Carol Ann! Just realised how tardy I am with responding – so sorry! Lumba was my favourite too – the colours change every few seconds, and there are lights running up & down each “sail” when you “speak” at it. Interactive fun!

  3. Hi Ju-Lyn,

    Wow, what great pictures. You have really captured the spirit of the festival. I feel as if I was there, with you, enjoying the sites.

    This is just what we all need during these dark days of winter.

  4. Ju-Lyn, the evening started with nature’s own dramatic and magical light show before the installations themselves. All vibrant and vivid and I also love the Lumba ones, ethereal and mystical! I wouldn’t want to run past these rather amble very slowly by to enjoy them all. πŸ˜€ Hope you’re having a chance to enjoy the Art Week festivities and look forward to learning more about them. xx

  5. Such a blessing for you to live in such a wonderful place! I’m not a fan of cities, so I’m glad you get to share the delights of yours here, without me having to live with the crowds. πŸ™‚ I would still happily visit, however!

    1. They were rather spectacular Janet – and this year, the light & music shows were made by art students (as opposed to professional artists from previous years) – the vibe was very peppy and fun!
