the Waterloo Arts Belt is the contemporary sculpture space - Sculpture Square. Just a
brisk walk away
from the Singapore Arts Museum and other arts groups, visitors
immerse in history as you enter the 16,000 square feet grounds
of the former site of a late 19th century old Baba Methodist
church. A treasured Singapore historical landmark, visitors
delight in the charming play between space and nature. Sculptors
find themselves at home in the sanctuary of shaded courtyards
and cool gardens. Visitors enter the exhibition hall with
reverence as others before may have had approached the chapel..
The pillar-free hall with a dramatic 9-metre ceiling creates
the perfect place for displaying large works of art. Today,
the hall is a treasured Singapore historical landmark. This
19th century old Baba Methodist church provides a tranquil environment
for art-goers to contemplate on the exhibits. The bare walls
and plain cement floors do not compete for attention with the
exhibits. To ease installation of large exhibits, the doors
by the loading bay accommodates a forklift to enter the hall.
to the Exhibition Hall is the Gallery. The Gallery accommodates smaller works of art for
more intimate exhibitions. The meeting rooms on the second floor
are ideal for private meetings and small classes.
