Citi Singapore, BT BAF in mass art jamming event to raise funds for charity
AS PART Of Citi's Global Community Day, Citi Singapore held its first mass art jamming initiative with The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF).
The event was held over two days at Citi's offices at Asia Square and Changi Business Park.
Lin Hsiu-Yi (far left), managing director and head of commercial bank, Citi Singapore, painted a panel of the "Global Presence" mural. She was joined by Tan Tee Tong (in black), RICE Company chief operating officer, and Yeow Ju Li (right), a member of the Board of Trustees of BT BAF.
Their efforts were guided by Angel Tee, a young artist from BT BAF.
A total of 824 Citibankers and invited guests came together to paint five murals which will be displayed at various locations including Citi's offices and BT BAF's arts training centres. One of the five murals, measuring 5 metres by 2.5 metres, also set a new record of "Largest Acrylic Art Montage" in the Singapore Book of Records.
With a S$5 donation pledge by Citi Singapore for every registered participant at the event, S$4,2120 was raised for BT BAF. An additional S$15,880 will be donated to BT BAF in support of upcoming projects later in the year, taking the grand total to S$20,000.
