Performance Schedule Announced for Third Annual Art on the Atlanta BeltLine

Dynamic Exhibition Kicks off Saturday, September 8 with Performances through Sunday, November 11

ATLANTA (August 23, 2012) – Art on the Atlanta Beltline returns this fall as Atlanta’s largest temporary public art exhibition, showcasing the work of new and returning, established and emerging visual artists, performers, and musicians along nine miles of the Atlanta BeltLine on both the east and west sides of town. The third annual Art on the Atlanta BeltLine uses varied and dynamic art installations to draw the public onto some of the most unique public spaces in the City of Atlanta, providing powerful new perspectives on the city and its vibrant neighborhoods. The exhibition will open on Saturday, September 8, kicking off with the Krewe of the Grateful Glutton’s Lantern Parade beginning at 7:30 p.m. at the intersection of Lake Avenue / Irwin Street and the Eastside Trail. The two-month long exhibition will feature free outdoor performances over seven weekends beginning Saturday, September 15 through Sunday, November 11.

The exhibition showcases how art strengthens and beautifies current and former industrial areas and creates signature spaces exemplifying the transformation of the city through the Atlanta BeltLine. This year’s exhibition also celebrates the opening of the Eastside Trail, the new 2.25-mile long multi-use path connecting Piedmont Park to Virginia Highland, Poncey-Highlands, Old Fourth Ward, and Inman Park, which will be officially dedicated on October 15.
