The Art Wall Collaboration for Two Children Charities
Located within an arts and cultural precinct, Food Junction is pleased to announce its collaboration with The RICE Company Limited in curating and showcasing the first collection of art pieces for the Art Market walls. Branded as The Art Walls, it is a stretch of three walls within the Art Market specially dedicated for Singapore's young and talented artists as they contribute their paintings in a bid to raise funds for their less-privileged peers.

Net proceeds from the sale of these paintings will go to The Business Times Budding Artists Fund (BT BAF) and The Straits Times School Pocket Money Fund (ST SPMF). BT BAF provides fully-sponsored arts training for children and youth from financially-disadvantaged families and ST SPMF disburses pocket money to children from low-income families.

The Art Walls will be reserved for this collaboration for six months to one year with a new collection showcased every three months. The debut theme for The Art Walls is Marine Life.

Launched on 8th May 2014, Thursday, by Food Junction CEO Ms Teo Chew Hoon & Business Times Editor, Mr Alvin Tay. This is the first charity Art Wall in a food court and all proceeds from sale of art pieces go towards. Due to tremendous support, all art pieces received bids within an hour of the launch.
