tunnelbana

Stockholm’s T-bana considers itself the longest art exhibition in the world: 90 of the 100 metro stations have been decorated with sculptures, paintings, mosaics, and/or installations.  Many stations have left exposed the bedrock through which they were carved – in the Rinkeby station shown above, you can see that the bedrock has been painted a copper color, with gold mosaics referencing Viking runes.  The art addresses various historical and cultural themes, and while most of the artwork is permanent, there are temporary exhibitions in some stations.  Unfortunately several stations were closed due to construction so we weren’t able to view the artwork, but the many stations we were able to visit were quite fascinating.  stockholm-2597
