Pacita's Painted Bridge

Text by Jack Garrity

"Pacita's Painted Bridge" richly and vividly chronicles international artist, Pacita Abad's quest to transform the "battleship grey" Alkaff Bridge over the Singapore River, into a vibrantly multi-colored, public outdoor sculpture. The book is beautifully photographed by Michael Liew and details Pacita's persistent pursuit of her dream to paint the Bridge and the artistic challenges she overcame to successfully complete the project.
This book is a visual gem and an enchanting tale that is meant to be an inspiration to all artists, architects, urban officials and other people, who are passionate about bringing public art into the community for everyone to enjoy.
