Light to Night Festival is an annual urban art event that celebrates the stunning Civic District of Singapore. This second edition explores the sensation of colour through the visual, literary, and performing art forms, and transforms major cultural institutions and parks into spectacular works of art.

The Padang will turn into a sprawling picnic ground complete with a Festival Food Street. Sit back and enjoy a multimedia projection show unfolding across the façade of National Gallery Singapore. The precinct's cultural institutions will stay open till late over the weekends, with programmes to tease the sensations and bring the experience of colours alive. Four artists – Ho Tzu Nyen, Lee Mingwei, David Medalla, and Pinaree Sanpitak – will also unveil new artworks created especially for the Gallery.

Participating institutions: National Gallery Singapore, Padang, The Arts House, Victoria Theatre and Concert Hall, Asian Civilisations Museum, Empress Lawn, Empress Park, Esplanade – Theatres on the Bay. Image: Light to Night Festival, 2017. Image courtesy of National Gallery Singapore.
