About Campaign

The Singapore Art Museum will be undergoing redevelopment of its buildings to create an iconic museum space for contemporary art in Singapore. Part of this major undertaking is the conservation and preservation of the buildings' heritage architecture, thoughtfully blending the old and the new.

We invite you to contribute to SAM's capital fundraising campaign and enjoy an exclusive portrait session* with celebrity photographer Russel Wong within SAM's beautiful buildings.

These special portrait sessions are unique commemorative occasions specifically created to capture treasured memories in SAM as keepsakes for our patrons before the buildings are significantly transformed over the next few years.

Donations begin at $10,000 and all proceeds will support the redevelopment efforts to create public spaces and new art spaces where everyone can enjoy, experience and engage with contemporary art.

For more information, please contact [email protected] or 6697 9740.

About the Charity

The Singapore Art Museum opened its doors in 1996 as the first fully dedicated visual arts museum in Singapore. Since then, we have built one of the world's most important collections of contemporary art by artists from Singapore, Southeast Asia and Asia. We are committed to creating meaningful encounters with art for all our visitors, through our exhibitions, research, publications, public and educational outreach. In 2019, our two museum sites - the former St. Joseph's Institution building on Bras Basah Road and former Catholic High School building on Queen Street, closed for a building redevelopment. With the aim to create an architectural landmark for contemporary art in Singapore, this major undertaking includes the preservation of the buildings' heritage architecture, thoughtfully blending the old and the new. When SAM re-opens, visitors can look forward to an iconic museum space where the public can experience and engage with art. During this period, we will continue to hold exhibitions and events at partner venues and spaces like the Regional Libraries of Tampines, Woodlands and Jurong. Please visit www.singaporeartmuseum.sg or follow us on Facebook and Instagram for the latest information about our building works and museum programming. The redevelopment is supported by the Ministry of Culture, Community and Youth (MCCY), and Tote Board.
