National Award: Artjamila received President’s Special Recognition Award for Putrajaya Sculpture, MIP MyPlace Award 2019


15th November 2019 (Friday):

ARCA PUTRAJAYA won an award under "MIP MyPLACE AWARD 2019: Excellence in Placemaking". The award given was the "President's Special Recognition" conferred by Putrajaya Corporation (PJC).

Arca Putrajaya (2.4 m high x 22m length) is a landmark city sign designed to rejuvenate and enliven the Putra Square, a place of identity known as the "heart of the administrative capital" in Putrajaya. It is a major attraction for tourists and visitors as a must destination to be visited in Putrajaya, a #hotspotzone. Every year, there are 6 to 7 millions visitors who visit the sculpture. At night, it is filled with family leisure activities and creates well-being for a happy city. Artjamila's painting was selected because the painting, titled "Unity in Diversity Skyline Series 3", was suitable for the Merdeka celebration of 2019. The painting represented the multiracial community in Malaysia living in harmony as one nation.

MyPLACE AWARDS 2019 recognises excellence in placemaking efforts by organisations and communities to improve public spaces which bring positive impacts and benefits to their local communities, creating a sense of place to the public.
