Melbourne Art Trams 2019
FRI 4 OCTOBER 2019 - AUGUST 2020
Melbourne Art Trams
Yarra Trams network
Melbourne's grandest festival is indelibly linked with one of its most visible expressions: the annual transformation of trams into moving canvases proudly wearing some of our most arresting artworks.
Welcoming all comers and weaving their way through the city, these trams are as much a part of Melbourne's fabric as the Festival itself.
Melbourne Art Trams takes as its inspiration the original Transporting Art project, which from 1978 to 1993 saw iconic local artists the likes of Mirka Mora, Howard Arkley and Reg Mombassa transforming historic W-class trams with their vivid art. The Festival reignited this spark in 2013 and ever since has been inviting artists to submit their ideas for rich and illuminating new designs.
Every year eight creative minds from Victoria make over a tram each, with one given to a recreation of an original Transporting Art work. This year that entry will be inspired by Lesley Dumbrell's 1986 tram, whose vibrant design will again bring colour to Melbourne streets.
The 2019 Melbourne Art Trams artists will be announced in late July.
