Art on the Atlanta BeltLine – So Much to Explore!

As we approach the halfway point of the 2013 Art on the Atlanta BeltLine exhibition, now is the time to get out to the Atlanta BeltLine to see some art! The weather has been perfect for a daytime hike through the Southwest Trail, where you’ll see murals and sculptures along with the beautiful foliage of the natural landscape.

When you’re on the Southwest Trail taking your own photos, don’t forget to tag #beltlineart and #southwesttrail on social media. We love sharing your photos!

The Eastside Trail has no lack of innovation and creativity. Put on your running shoes, leash up the pup, get out your bike or your big wheel – whatever gets you moving, there is plenty of art to see!

Tag #beltineart and #eastsidetrail as you work your way through this awesome exhibition:

Speaking of the Eastside, the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine performances gave summer a terrific sendoff in Historic Fourth Ward Park last weekend. Hundreds of people enjoyed the bright blue skies and warm weather on Saturday, Sept. 28 and Sunday, Sept. 29.
