Have you seen one of Melbourne's moving artworks? For six months from the Festival opening, eight trams running along different routes have become moving works of art, decorated by some of Victoria's most talented artists. Vote for your favourite!Between 1978 and 1993, a project called Transporting Art saw 36 of Melbourne's iconic W-class trams completely repainted by some of Australia's most renowned artists, including Mirka Mora, Howard Arkley, Michael Leunig, Reg Mombassa, Trevor Nickolls and many more.Thirty-five years after its original unveiling, Melbourne Festival is excited to partner with Arts Victoria and Yarra Trams to revive and re-imagine this much-loved project. From the opening weekend of the Festival - and for the next six months - eight trams running along different routes will become moving works of art, decorated by some of Victoria's most talented artists.With both emerging and established artists invited to submit designs, Melbourne Art Trams will be a vivid snapshot of the aesthetic pulse of our city, writ large on the bodies of its most iconic residents.
