Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Announces Performance Schedule

Fourth Annual Exhibition Kicks off Saturday, September 7th with Lantern Parade on the Eastside Trail

ATLANTA Art on the Atlanta Beltline returns this fall as Atlanta’s largest temporary public art exhibition, showcasing over 70 innovative works of performance and visual art from new and returning artists. The temporary installations feature the work of established and emerging artists along eight miles of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor.  The fourth annual Art on the Atlanta BeltLine exhibition draws the public into 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 continue over two months, featuring performances over four weekends. The exhibition kicks off on Saturday, September 7 with the annual Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade, featuring the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons. The event will begin at 7:30 p.m. with tailgating at the intersection of Krog Street and Irwin Street, and will step onto the Eastside Trail at 8:30 p.m.

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is an essential part of the overall Atlanta BeltLine vision,” said Paul Morris, President and CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. “This exhibit represents the transformational nature of the program as a whole – redefining the old railroad corridors as public urban spaces and corridors of mobility and human interaction.”

“The City of Atlanta proudly supports Art on the Atlanta BeltLine in its fourth year,” said Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs. “The opportunity for public engagement with art is a valuable resource that this temporary exhibition offers as it continues to draw out new interest and interaction from the community.”

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is made possible by support from our generous community partners, donors, and sponsors. Special thanks go to the Office of Cultural Affairs, Fulton County Arts Council, the Sarah Giles Moore Foundation and our presenting sponsor for the fourth consecutive year, U.S. Micro. The exhibition showcases how art strengthens communities by creating a public space for dialogue and growth, exemplifying the transformative nature of the Atlanta BeltLine.

“In a fast-paced city, it’s vital that we make an effort to create great public spaces that bring people together,” said Jim Kegley, president and CEO of U.S. Micro, the presenting sponsor. “At U.S. Micro, we’re proud to sponsor this wonderful celebration of community and art. Congratulations and thanks to all the artists who make this an exciting exhibition year-in and year-out.”
