USSG55 Virtual Photo Exhibition

November 2, 2021

This year the United States and Singapore are celebrating 55 years of diplomatic relations. To commemorate this milestone, U.S. Embassy Singapore invites you to our newly launched virtual photo exhibition “From Sea to Shining Sea: 55 Years of U.S.-Singapore Relations in Photos.

The exhibition highlights the friendship, cooperation, and inspiration between the United States and Singapore since we established diplomatic relations in 1966. We invite you to take a virtual walk down memory lane as we celebrate the deep ties and continued collaboration between our two nations.

The 55 exclusive photos within the exhibition celebrate many of the shared values between the United States and Singapore with themes including Diplomatic Relations, Culture in Action, Musical Stars, Doing Business Together, Strength in Security, and a special collection of U.S. diplomat George Porter’s personal photos of Singapore from the 1960s.

We welcome you to engage with the curated collection of photos and other multimedia content. You can invite your friends to visit the exhibition and share your favorite memories of U.S.-Singapore connections on social media with the hashtag #USSG55.

This exhibition is a collaboration between U.S. Embassy Singapore and the creative team of Project Manager Hera, Writer, Curator and Researcher Yu-Mei Balasingamchow, Designer Lim Shu Min, Sound Designer Ramesh Krishnan, Musicians Munir Alsagoff and Mohamed Noor, Web Developer Mao Yuncheng, and Advisors Laura Miotto and Dr. Paul Taylor and is supported by SPH Media Limited and National Library Board.
