This sketchwalk I spent more social time than sketching time, so happy to complete one!
The Singapore Art Museum once housed St Joseph’s Institution (SJI), a Catholic boys’ school, run by La Salle Brothers. In 1855, the cornerstone was laid by its founder, Father Jean-Marie Beurel. After 135 years in Bras Basah Road, SJI was relocated, making way for SAM. Standing at 10,000 metre floor space, the restored building includes 18 full climate controlled galleries, an auditorium, a multi-purpose hall, a museum shop, courtyards, one cafés and two restaurants, all to ensure a quality lifestyle experience for the visitors.
