To enliven the area, the Shainghai Street Refuse collection point, street sleeper's shelter and public toilet got a makeover. Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation collaborated with 70 primary and secondary school students to come up with an amazing design.
The theme is based on traditional Chinese opera and the motifs that decorate its stage costumes. The new look brings Yau Tsim Mong District's artistic living space to the fore, while adding unique aesthetic value to its public facilities.
Go and have a look yourself, it is on the corner of Shanghai Street and Waterloo Road in Kowloon. More details you can find here.
Exciting times! The MTR in partnership with the Art Promotion Office are looking for artwork commissions for the new MTR stations.
