Art Trams history

Between 1978 and 1993, a project called Transporting Art saw 36 of Melbourne's iconic trams completely repainted by some of Australia's most renowned artists. In 2013 Transporting Art was reimagined to become Melbourne Art Trams, an annual celebration of art and our iconic trams together in Melbourne.
