“Heroes of Our Time” is an exhibition of art paying tribute to healthcare workers and frontliners in Singapore’s fight against COVID-19. Co-organised by the National Healthcare Group and Singapore Art Society, the exhibition captures diverse perspectives of the pandemic by featuring works of budding to professional artists of all ages, as well as migrant workers.

The 1.8m x 3m acrylic painting shown, created by 18 artists from Singapore Art Society, forms the central artwork. It was presented to the National Centre for Infectious Diseases, which has been at the forefront of Singapore’s efforts to manage the pandemic.
