The Enchanted Tree House by Sandra Lee at the National Gallery Singapore

I recently visited the newly opened National Gallery in Singapore to check out my talented artist friend’s interactive art exhibition and play space. The Enchanted Tree House by Sandra Lee is definitely worth a visit. It is part of the Keppel Centre for Art Education located on Level 1 of the building.

The building is the historical former Supreme Court and City Hall buildings restored and redesigned to form the National Gallery.
