    Arrow Close shop for Supreme Court buildings and City Hall till 2013

    National Art Gallery's open house

    By Corrie Tan

    ABOUT 66 Singapore artists, some toting red picture frames as props, gathered on the steps of City Hall Friday afternoon with Acting Minister for Information, Communication and the Arts Mr Lui Tuck Yew.

    They were there to mark the official launch of the National Art Gallery's open house, together with gallery director Mr Kwok Kian Chow and chief executive officer of the gallery Mr Michael Koh. The artists were drawn from various art societies here.
    The Gallery's open house is on this weekend and next weekend. All guided tours have been fully booked, but visitors are still welcome.

    Visitors will get to see 12 winning entries of a photography competition organised by the Gallery and the Singapore Photographic Society of Singapore on level one of City Hall.
    Mr Lui, who was guest-of-honour at Friday's launch, also presented prizes to the winners of a photo competition titled, 'A Photo Journey, Memories Of The City Hall And Former Supreme Court'.

    After the open house, the old Supreme Court buildings and City Hall will be closed for renovation and restoration. Works are due to be completed by 2013.

    Their guided tour are fully booked, but visitors allows to go in? I heard from NAG that it's very complex there. Can we still go in and walk around?
