Tube art

Art and design have always been at the heart of the London Underground’s identity. The Art on the Underground Project aims to enrich people’s experience on the Tube with a world-class programme of contemporary art. (Cheers Amy)

The latest instalment is “A Lock is a Gate”, a colourful exhibition in Bethnal Green station led by artist Ruth Ewan with composer Kerry Andrew and poet Evlynn Sharp.

It’s a mini concept album with drawings for the Central line, created by young people from the Laburnum Boat Club youth project in Hackney. Nearly 40 members of the Club took part in the creation of an album of experimental songs, a book of drawings and posters for the Central line.
