Marina Mandarin Singapore engaged the services of AAO to further enhance its corporate branding as a Patron of the Arts. AAO worked closely with the hotel to develop its Artist-in-Residence program, and facilitated the program launch in 2006 with the introduction and selection of the artists.
AAO also developed special art events & exhibits beginning with the festive “Partridge in a Pink Pear Tree” exhibition in December 2005 and the sell-out Pop art exhibition "(M)emories & (M)ementoes" in May 2007. The collaboration continued with the 2007 launch of the hotel's highly successful Art Series OF mooncake boxes, WITH its first designed BY Singapore's award-winning Pop artist Justin Lee.
