Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Call for Artists

Seeking Artists for Atlanta’s Largest Temporary Public Art Exhibition Returning in Fall 2013 

Atlanta – Now celebrating its fourth year as Atlanta’s largest temporary public art exhibition, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for artists to solicit outdoor, temporary works of art for presentation on the Atlanta BeltLine in the fall of 2013. The exhibition space will span almost eight miles, including the recently opened Eastside Trail stretching from 10th Street and Monroe Drive to Irwin Street.  Artists are encouraged to submit proposals that marry their artistic visions with the landscape and sustainability themes of the Atlanta BeltLine.

Proposals should reflect the historic, environmental, cultural, functional, urban design and/or aesthetic parameters of the potential sites and should be well-researched by the candidates. Potential projects could include sculptures, murals, music, dance, theater, performance art, amenities for visitors, planting or environmental works, and more. See previously funded projects at art.beltline.org.

The submission deadline is April 10, 2013. The RFP can be found online at art.beltline.org and is available for download now. Electronic submission will be available starting February 18, 2013.

Installation will begin in June and projects must be installed no later than August 31, 2013. A timeline and installation schedule will be developed with each artist or artist team. Five information sessions will be hosted to provide additional information and answer questions around this exciting project:

Since 2010, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine has showcased the dynamic installations and performances of established and emerging artists along hiking trails in the southwest, east and southeast. The exhibition is an inspiring way to explore this emerging system of parks, trails, transit, and development that reclaims a 22-mile loop of historic rail lines around the City’s core. Its popularity has resulted in a 40 percent growth in the exhibition since 2010 and brought thousands of residents into the corridor.
