ACM sets a colourful new record

The Asian Civilisations Museum (ACM) set a new record today for Singapore's largest chalk art.

Over 200 visitors created a sprawling mosaic of colourful geometric patterns inspired by Islamic art in this record-breaking flash art activity.

Measuring 12 metres by 16.8 metres, with a total area of 201.6 square metres, Chalk It Up! covered the entire ACM courtyard and successfully broke the previous record of 168.96 square metres, held by Fajar Secondary School in 2010.

The event was part of the Treasures of the Aga Khan Museum Weekend Festival, which also showcased Iranian dances, accompanied by mysterious and fanciful pari (fairies) by the internationally renowned Silk Road Dance Company (SRDC).

The exhibition is on display at the ACM until Oct 28.
