Hopping on the rabbit theme with a twist of its own is Funan. Instead of seeing the usual red lanterns sprawled across the mall, you’ll find more contemporary themes based around the Year of the Rabbit. And while you’re snapping away for the Gram, you can stand a chance to win STAR$ worth $50 too.
The displays are part of the overarching theme of Creative Intersections: In the Year of the Rabbit. It’s part of this year’s Singapore Art Week 2023 and runs from now until 5th February 2023.
Spot the bunny and get a chance at the money. All you have to do is look out for 6 rabbit sculptures hidden in 2 areas of the mall and post a photo of yourself posing with one of them on Instagram. Remember to hashtag #CreativeIntersections and tag @funansg in your captions. To qualify, you will have to follow @funansg and share Funan’s Instagram post.
5 people will be picked to win 50,000 STAR$ – currency for the point system in the CapitaStar app (App Store | Google Play). This equates to $50 worth of eCapitaVouchers that you can use to get your CNY shopping done. You have till 5th February 2023 to join the contest so hop on to it.
Each of the 6 rabbit sculptures hidden around the mall have been painted by different artists to reflect their take on Funan’s colours and retail stores. For instance, Dawn Ang AKA Aeropalmics painted a grey robot-inspired bunny as a tribute to Funan’s longtime association with tech stores.
Get some IG-worthy shots at the Lenskart and Howie Kim installation to brighten up your feed.
For those who like dabbling in the arts or simply just admiring them, take a stroll and view the 6 pop-up art displays around the mall. Each display is a unique collaboration piece between a local artist and a brand, showcasing the artist’s take on the year of the rabbit theme.
