Community Love: Georgia State University, School of Art and Design

This past Spring, students from Georgia State University’s School of Art and Design under the guidance of Professor Pam Longobardi had the opportunity to bring their art outside of the classroom and into the public realm. Elan Buchen, Atlanta BeltLine Project Coordinator for Art and Design, spoke to the class about the Atlanta BeltLine and what opportunities it presents for public art.  The students worked with their professor and Atlanta BeltLine staff to choose their individual sites along the Reynoldstown section of the Eastside Trail. They were asked to consider the level of visibility for their work, encouraging an intentional consideration for the interactions between people and public art.

Georgia State University students created public art on the Atlanta BeltLine.

Being a temporary art installation, the students were also encouraged to consider the duration of their piece, and the significance of its location. A variety of factors, including the environment, could alter the work from the beginning of the installation to the end. All manner of materials were used for the installations, both natural and man-made. Trees, rocks, and grass were used in installations, as were glass, fabric, and old rails.
