Public Art.

Pieter Bruegel’s Tower of Babel, image by Kunsthistorisches Museum

The Kunsthistorisches Museum in Vienna presents its masterpieces in public. In Vienna, on about 29 busy locations – subway stations, railway stations, house walls – the museum is showing treasures from the collection: Pieter Bruegel’s Tower of Babel, Raffael, Lucas Cranach and much more. The campaign should bring the museum back to the people’s mind.

Needless to say, the paintings are copies.
