Melbourne Art TramsIf art reminds us that how you get there is as important as the place you’re going, it’s no wonder that Melbourne Art Trams has tapped into something essential about this city.
For the fourth year running, Victorian artists from a wide spectrum of disciplines have been invited to reimagine these most Melbourne of icons, enabling us to see them with new eyes. From established artmakers to the brightest emerging talents, these travelling installations are a visible reminder of the creative pulse that beats beneath the city’s streets.
A revival of the Transporting Art project that ran between 1987 and 1993, Melbourne Art Trams is made possible through a creative partnership between Melbourne Festival, Creative Victoria and Public Transport Victoria in collaboration with Yarra Trams.
