Make SG50 extra special by kick-starting your year with a unique self-portrait. National Gallery Singapore commemorates Singapore’s 50th birthday with Portraits of the People, a fun community outreach which rallies the Singapore public to submit self-portraits and pledge their commitment to the country.

These self-portraits will be incorporated into the Art Connector, a new and permanent 290m walkway which will stretch from City Hall MRT station to the entrance of the new Gallery along Coleman Street. The finished walkway will serve as a meaningful tribute to the people of Singapore.
