City Dress-up Programme

In addition to 20th Anniversary celebration activities, the HKSAR Government has joined hands with local artists, designers and professional groups to beautify our city and bring innovation into daily life, so people can enjoy a fresh look when they walk on the streets. Check out the details …

 

Leisure and Cultural Services Department

City Dress-up • Blossoming Stairs

The 20th Anniversary also coincides with the 55th anniversary of the Hong Kong Museum of Art. To mark this "double happiness" an outdoor art project "City Dress Up • Blossoming Stairs" was launched in April 2017 by the Museum. Staircases in various districts are being decorated with floral motifs sourced from the Museum's collection to echo the theme of the four seasons. Various educational activities will also be staged in different districts each month. We hope residents will visit the stairs and enjoy this new way of enjoying art in public spaces – and don't forget to take a selfie and share!

Seats • Together

Apart from staircases, seats are always in high demand in public spaces – that is why the LCSD also launches the "Seats • Together" public art project. With the assistance of four guest curatorial groups, seats designed by 20 local artist groups are featured in the LCSD parks and open public spaces across the 18 districts. Each of the artistic furniture infuses the concepts of art, design, architecture, lifestyle and community. The project aims to display the boundless creativity of young artists and to inject art elements into Hong Kong’s everyday cityscape. You are most welcome to take a seat at all 20 different locations!

Development Bureau

The Development Bureau is organising a number of art activities and working with professionals and young people to provide a number of city pockets with unique artistic creations to beautify the environment for public enjoyment. The Bureau will join hands with professional institutes to launch a public art competition, with winning works to be displayed in nine city pockets in various districts, including the waterfronts in Central and Kwun Tong. Tertiary students are encouraged to participate in landscaping design, which will provide young people an opportunity to showcase their talents and participate in community affairs.

In addition, the Bureau in collaboration with the Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation, organised the City Momentum Public Art Project. The Project engaged eight local artists and illustrators to beautify 10 hoardings of public works sites in our city, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the establishment of the HKSAR. Featuring elements such as local architecture, food, transportation, occupations and attractions, these colourful interpretations of city life in Hong Kong are a vibrant reflection of the city's diversity.

 

Highways Department

The Highways Department has introduced thematic or chromatic designs in 31 high usage footbridges and subways to give them a refreshing image.
