Metro stations throughout Moscow will host young artists tomorrow in celebration of the Day of the Artist.

According to a statement by the press service of the Moscow metro, during the first half of 8 December students and recent graduates of Russian art schools will work on their paintings or drawings in metro stations around the city.

The artists themselves have chosen the locations at which they will be stationed, among which are famous stations such as Komsomolskaya and Novoslobodskaya, as well as lesser-known stations.
