What to expect with Singapore Art Museum’s $90 million revamp

Do give money to The Arts.

Currently undergoing a $90 million makeover led by the architects from SCDA, Singapore Art Museum (SAM) is slated to be reopened in 2023, instead of 2021 as originally projected.

Ms Chong Siak Ching, deputy chair of SAM’s executive committee of the board and head of the Visual Arts Cluster, shared,”As we went into the detailed investigation of the building, we discovered, as a very old heritage building that was last renovated 20 over years ago when SAM first opened, there were a lot more areas that we had to address than we originally anticipated. (Source: The Straits Times)
