Performance Schedule Released for Year Five of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine

Annual Temporary Exhibition Begins with Lantern Parade on September 6, Performances on September 7

ATLANTA Art on the Atlanta Beltline returns for the fifth year with more visual art and performances than ever before. More than 100 installations and three performance weekends make this the largest temporary art exhibition in the City of Atlanta. The work of established and emerging artists will line the Atlanta BeltLine corridor through November 15, drawing the public into unique public spaces and reflecting the character of its vibrant neighborhoods. The exhibition kicks off on Saturday, September 6 with the annual Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade, hosted by 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.

The three performance weekends activate the Atlanta BeltLine as a public space in new and unexpected ways. From the Historic Fourth Ward’s outdoor theater to a band-shell erected on the Westside Trail in Adair Park, each performance day rewards the visitor with a different atmosphere. The family-friendly performances feature everything from smooth jazz and theater to contemporary dance and an orchestra playing to silent film screenings.

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine emphasizes the transformation taking place along the Atlanta BeltLine corridor,” said Paul Morris, President and CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. “Reclaiming and beautifying public spaces, providing opportunities for connectivity and interaction are all a part of what makes the Atlanta BeltLine program special.”

“Once again, the City of Atlanta is a proud supporter of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine,” said Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. “This exhibition is providing a major contribution to the public art scene in Atlanta for the fifth year in a row. It is vitally important that we continue to provide these public spaces to the City of Atlanta.”

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, and our presenting sponsor for the fifth consecutive year, U.S. Micro. Additional sponsors include Alchemy, AM1690, Atlanta Community TookBank, FHLB Atlanta, Il Gusto Bistro, Kroger, Liz Lapidus Public Relations, Moncreif Heating and Air Conditioning, Park Tavern, Ponce City Market, and Wela.

“The visual arts and performances featured during Art on the Atlanta BeltLine provide us with the opportunity to view our city in new ways,” said Jim Kegley, founder of U.S. Micro, presenting sponsor. “We’re proud supporters of the exhibition’s continued growth, knowing that each year more residents and visitors will experience these dynamic, unique works of public art.”
