Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department
"Museum of Art on Wheels" is a mobile museum with an aim of engaging schools and community. We hope to bring art to every corner of the city. Continuing last year's theme "Hong Kong Sign ‧ Hong Kong Signature", we are going to present a "word maze" city in which students could discover interesting signs and words that permeate every corner of our city, displaying our city's energy and spirit, as well as its cultural link to Chinese calligraphy. With a number of interactive games on this mobile museum, you will discover the uniqueness of Hong Kong's hybrid culture through an exciting interactive experience!
10 local artists and art groups will use art to tell different stories of Hong Kong in a series of artist workshops in various districts and host online projects for the public. Keep an eye on this website and the Facebook page of ‘Museum of Art on Wheels' for updates!
Museum of Art on Wheels X Wong Chung Yu
Artist Wong Chung Yu often brings elements from urban life into traditional landscape painting. Electricity and lights are some of his favorite choices of artistic elements. After drilling some holes on the paper, welding the wire, and then locating the electronic LED lamp beads on the landscape painting, Wong effortlessly creates landscape paintings with a contemporary touch. In the coming workshop, you will first learn how to draw a small landscape painting with ink and brush, and then decorate the work with electronic LED lamp beads to create a landscape painting shining with both traditional and contemporary luster.
Museum of Art on Wheels X Lau Hok Shing Hanison
In this workshop, artist Lau Hok Shing, Hanison will lead participants to learn using ready-mades to create works that constitute an ideal living environment with artistic skills and concepts. The artist will guide the participants to create miniature city and nature using recyclable materials such as packaging sponges, wire, cardboard and more, along with wood and hand drawing. The works will be exhibited on bamboo baskets and sticks created by the artist to reminisce the old street scenes of Hong Kong.
