In brief (from the MTR website): High quality art pieces enrich the travelling environment in the MTR network through the "Art in MTR" programme.
Introduced in 1998 with the "Airport Express Artwork Programme" when the Airport Express and Tung Chung Line opened, eye-catching works ranging from sculptures to roof hangings and mosaics were incorporated into the actual design of the station architecture.
Since then, the programme has expanded to all MTR railway lines. At present, over 80 works by established local and international artists from Australia, Mainland China, Japan, Malaysia, New Zealand, South Korea, Taiwan, the UK, the USA, Morocco, and France serve as memorable focal points in various stations around Hong Kong.
