RAVEEL COAST TRAM

10 COASTAL MUNICIPALITIES

Roger Raveel & Hugo Claus

A work of art outside category was the project Roger Raveel took on for the first edition of Beaufort in 2003: the painting of the coast tram. It turned into a cooperation with his good friend and poet Hugo Claus, from whom he incorporated a poem in his painting. The design, an oil painting on canvas, was purchased later on by the public transportation company De Lijn and hangs in the main office in Mechelen. After a printing procedure the painting was attached to the tram. The Raveel tram still makes almost daily trips from Knokke-Heist to De Panne and back.
