Art in the Metro

Many visitors to Amsterdam never ride the city’s limited Metro system; in fact many don’t even know that it exists. But the GVB’s clever campaign to refurbish the Zilbermeeuwen metro cars may encourage art-loving tourists to take a ride.

When the 30 year-old passenger cars began to show their age, the GVB partnered with the Amsterdam Fund for the Arts to start the “Art in the Metro” project. Local artists have already brightened 44 metro cars with original paintings.

The photos indicate the name of the artist and the metro car number.
