On Thursday, June 26, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine was presented with the 2014 Arts and Community Award from the Harlem Fine Arts Show.
In partnership with the National Black Arts Festival, the 2014 Harlem Fine Arts Show came to Atlanta June 26-29. The Atlanta BeltLine was recognized during the opening night reception, which benefited the National Black Arts Festival. The award honors projects that employ art as a community builder. Besides Atlanta, the show toured New York City and will stop in Martha’s Vineyard and Chicago.
“The Atlanta BeltLine is a remarkable redevelopment project focusing on building the community and connecting the people of Atlanta through art and the environment,” says Dion Clarke, founder of the Harlem Fine Arts Show. “This initiative will provide easy transportation to neighborhoods, parks, trails, and public art throughout historic Atlanta. It’s certainly most deserving of this recognition.”
The Harlem Fine Arts Show is held annually in New York City and has attracted about 50,000 visitors. More information about the show can be found at www.hfas.org
