Featuring both established and emerging artists, Melbourne Art Trams is a vibrant celebration of a vehicle that has become an emblem of Australia’s premier arts city. 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, Yarra Trams and Creative Victoria.
