Sneak Preview: Cultures of Creativity

I saw this advertised in the papers – the centennial exhibition of the Nobel Prize, at the Lee Kong Chian Atrium in NUS. Pilgrim Dad and I dropped by thinking it was already open but alas we were mistaken. Still, we saw the crew at work and spoke to Jim, the exhibition manager.

The exhibition looks fascinating – you’ll learn how Nobel Prizes are decided and awarded, who past laureates have been, and the processes and environments that shaped them. The displays are mostly static, though there is a strong audio-visual element. Jim told us that there will also be discovery areas on the second floor, with hands-on exhibits appropriate for kids 7 and up. Interesting fact: it takes a 9-man crew about 3 weeks to set up the exhibition.

I’ll post a review when we eventually visit. As a mother, I’d love to find out what circumstances shaped these outstanding individuals to go beyond the mundane and the mediocre, to ask bold questions and attempt new things. Admission: $2 for adults. Once again, the Singaporean in me shouts hurrah!
