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!

In the workshop, packaged drinks will serve as a medium to connect the history of Hong Kong with the public. The illustrator Angryangry will make architectural drawings on stickers to depict the social contexts of the four eras—prewar, postwar, Western-style buildings and industrial buildings, showcasing the characteristics and styles of the community at different times. The stickers will be tagged on packaged drinks to create a partly-virtual, partly-real city. Participants will then be invited to write down an expiry date and the story behind on the package so that the timelines and perspectives of the artist and participants will crisscross with one another.

A work of ceramic can be eulogized for thousands of years. Ceramic products such as tableware are also used as our daily necessities. While most of us think that it is a matter of course to use and own ceramic supplies, we do not know the challenge in making a pottery. Each unique piece of work is created out of love and passion, dedication and superb skills of the potter. This workshop will let the participants experience the pleasure of being a potter by creating a pottery work with their own hands, and learn how to appreciate and be thankful for all the ceramic works.

Based on the image of mythical animals in the Chinese classic The Classic in Mountains and Seas, the artist will guide the participants to make a kite in the workshop. Upon completion of the kite-making, the artist and the participants will fly the "mythical animal kites" into the sky, so that the mirage and scenes in The Classic in Mountains and Seas will appear in the urban landscape today.

"City Painting Bento" is going to take light and shadow out onto the streets. With tablet computers and portable lighting devices, the artist will guide the participants in creating graphics and digital paintings, and then together they will walk around the streets of the city, projecting the light and shadows everywhere. The prominent visuals in the dark will pull together people and the city through the interaction of new media art, audience and the public space.
