Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Releases Fall Performance Schedule

Annual exhibition begins with Lantern Parade on September 12 and continues through mid-November

ATLANTA – The sixth year of Art on the Atlanta Beltline features more than 100 visual and performance projects, making it the largest outdoor exhibition in the south. Beginning on September 12 with the Lantern Parade created and hosted by Chantelle Rytter and the Krewe of the Grateful Gluttons and sponsored by Atlanta Medical Center, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine features more than 60 visual installations and dozens of performances over three weekends. Following the Old Fourth Ward Fall Festival on September 11 and 12, the Lantern Parade begins with lineup on the Eastside Trail at Irwin Street at 7:15 p.m. on Saturday. The parade will step-off at 8:15p.m. and go north on the trail to Piedmont Park. The following bands are joining the 2015 parade:

  • 8:15 p.m.  – The Seed & Feed Marching Abominables
  • 8:30 p.m. – Wasted Potential Brass Band
  • 8:45 p.m. – Mausiki Scales and the Common Ground Collective
  • 9:00 p.m. – Atlanta Freedom Bands
  • 9:15 p.m. – The Black Sheep Ensemble

Concentrated on the Eastside Trail, the 2015 exhibition brings established and emerging artists to present work along the paved and interim portions of the Eastside Trail. As always, the exhibition is completely free and open to the public. With the Westside Trail currently under construction, performances will take place in Gordon White Park and Historic Fourth Ward Park and the interim trails through Reynoldstown and along Piedmont Park. Temporary installations will remain on the trail through mid-November.

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine celebrates public art as a core component of a healthy, vibrant city and a key element of the Atlanta BeltLine program,” said Paul Morris, President and CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. “The transformation that has taken place on the Eastside Trail has further built excitement for the completion of the highly-anticipated Westside Trail.”

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine brings art to the public realm with a range of diverse installations each year,” said Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. “The City of Atlanta is excited to support the exhibition once again, further establishing the importance of art as a component of a city’s culture.”

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is made possible by support from our generous community partners, donors, and sponsors. Special thanks go to our presenting sponsors, the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and 10th and Monroe, LLC.
