Where’s WALTER? – What’s On: 17/18 Sept 2011
Chances are, the kids have already met WALTER, the ‘Curious Colossal Bunny’, at 8Q at SAM (Singapore Art Museum) during the museum’s Children’s Season. If they missed him, or miss him, here’s an opportunity to start a beautiful relationship or revive a flagging one.
Who’s WALTER, you ask? Well, he’s only our nation’s most celebrated buck and local artist Dawn Ng’s very big (literally!) pet project. Guerilla installations of this plus-sized mammal pop up in unexpected locations across the island, challenging our perceptions of the overlooked and the familiar while dodging men in blue and (so the press release says) people born without a sense of humour.
So hop down to Marina Bay this weekend to rendezvous with WALTER at the Marina Bay City Gallery from 12pm to 9pm. And yes, we’re about to dangle some carrots to get you going…
1. Kids can take part in a colouring competition, story-telling sessions, visit a mobile library on rabbits, enjoy a picnic… and more!
2. Free HP activities
• Pictures: A HP photo booth where you can take a photo with WALTER, then email it to the ePrint-enabled printer via your smartphone for an instant printout. Complimentary printouts for the first 200 people daily.
• Craft: A showcase of kid-friendly print apps — from Sesame Street and Dreamworks® Animation printables to Crayola activities — on HP’s latest Photosmart range. Just what you need to keep the little ones occupied at home!
• Win: Walk home with a HP printer! All you have to do is check-in to “Marina Bay City Gallery” on Facebook Places or Foursquare this weekend or next (Sept 17-18 and Sept 24-25), leave a comment or a photo and stand a chance to win a prize in an instant lucky draw. Present the check-in post at reception and you’ll be in the running to win one of 50 prizes, which include two HP Photosmart Wireless B110a printers (worth $199 each) as well as WALTER and Marina Bay memorabilia.
• Shutterbugs: Photography enthusiasts, simply upload a photo taken with WALTER to Marina Bay Singapore’s Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/marinabaysg), together with an interesting caption by October 2.
