The Stockholm subway system is said to be the world’s longest art exhibit – 110 kilometers long. No other subway system in the world has a more ambitious art project. Over 90 of the 100 subway stations in Stockholm have been decorated with sculptures, mosaics, paintings, installations, engravings and reliefs by over 150 artists.
The project is ongoing and every now and then new art is added to the collection. Next up are the stations Svedmyra, Stureby, Skanstull, Mariatorget and Enskede Gård.
Public art + Public Transport = <3!
P.S. You know about the guided art tours, don’t you?
