View the works of 30 artists and illustrators from 13 countries at the family-friendly exhibition The Sea Show at the Singapore Maritime Gallery from 1 April to 13 July 2021.
The Sea Show is a multimedia exhibition designed to be a stimulating and thought-provoking experience where both children and adults can learn about the ocean. It celebrates the wonder of travel and exploration, ships and cargo, with artworks, animations and installations presented at the Singapore Maritime Gallery’s Changing Gallery.
Learning About the Maritime World & Oceans through Art
At The Sea Show, visitors will be transported to the hustle and bustle of a busy dockyard. Learn about marine-related professions through a ‘Where’s Wally’ inspired game.

There are also Augmented Reality exhibits which highlight famous sea explorers such as Christopher Columbus and Zheng He.
Another highlight of the exhibition is an aquatic cinema with four vertical screens airing ocean-themed animations.
There is also the ‘Shark Café’, a re-creation of a remote part of the Pacific Ocean where the Great White sharks migrate to in the winter. Another photo worthy installation is of the 1992 shipping container spillage incident where thousands of rubber ducks that were lost in the Pacific Ocean and are still being washed ashore today.
A special section of the exhibition is dedicated to 23 artworks created by artists from Pathlight School’s Artist Development Programme.
“Designing an engaging exhibition for kids in a COVID-19 world would mean keeping the show safe through no physical contact with interfaces whilst capturing the attention and engaging the children and adults. We designed the show to ensure that everyone who attends will learn something about the ocean and have fun in the process.,” said Tanya Wilson, Education Lead of EYEYAH!
Pick Up an Activity Booklet
Kids can pick up a complimentary activity booklet. This invites children to find clues and answers to puzzles and quizzes hidden within the exhibition.
Those who successfully complete the activity booklet will be rewarded with a complimentary copy of the Sea issue of EYEYAH!, an educational magazine which was supported by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore in 2019.
