Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Artists Selected for Fourth Annual Exhibition

Atlanta’s Largest Temporary Public Art Project Returns this Fall

Atlanta – Art on the Atlanta BeltLine returns this fall as the largest temporary public art project in Atlanta. With over 70 innovative works of performance and visual art, this exhibition positions emerging art alongside established art, with featured installations by new and returning artists. Eight miles of paved and interim hiking trails around the 22-mile Atlanta BeltLine corridor will provide the public space for the two-month long exhibition. Public art is a fundamental component to the Atlanta BeltLine project, along with transit, multi-use trails, greenspace, and affordable housing. Please see below for the full list of artists selected for the 2013 exhibition.

More than one hundred fifty proposals were submitted with more than 70 visual and performance pieces selected, including works of sculpture, dance, murals, theater, outdoor concerts, parades, performance art, and others. This is the first exhibition in which the Eastside Trail, opened in October 2012, is officially open for the duration of the project.

“The Atlanta BeltLine has made public art a priority, and this year is no exception,” said Paul Morris, President and CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. “Thanks to our great partners, sponsors and artists, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine will once again allow the public to experience the wonder of the Atlanta BeltLine in new and exciting ways with visual and performance art.”

“The City of Atlanta is once again proud to partner on Art on the Atlanta BeltLine,” said Camille Russell Love, director of City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs. “This fourth exhibition will continue this tradition of temporary art along the Atlanta BeltLine, fostering communication between artists and the public, and interaction among the individual neighborhoods.”

In early February, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) and the City’s Office of Cultural Affairs distributed a call for artists to solicit outdoor, temporary works of art. The temporary art is in addition to the year-round art collection located throughout the corridor, featuring work that is incorporated into the environment and design of the Atlanta BeltLine.

The Art on the Atlanta BeltLine working group includes volunteers from Atlanta BeltLine neighborhoods, local artists, historic preservationists and organizations such as WonderRoot, Eyedrum, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., the BeltLine Network, the City’s Office of Cultural Affairs, Atlanta City Council and the Fulton County Arts Council. The Atlanta Tool Bank is providing tools to support art installations.

From September through November, visual installations and performances will be concentrated in the following areas along the Atlanta BeltLine:

  • Between Montgomery Ferry Road and Monroe Drive
  • Between Monroe Drive and Irwin Street (Eastside Trail)
  • Between Wylie Street and Memorial Drive in Reynoldstown
