Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Artists Selected for 2014 Exhibition

Atlanta’s Largest Temporary Public Art Project Returns for a Fifth Year from September 6 to November 15

Atlanta – Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, now the largest temporary public art exhibition in the southeast, returns this fall for its fifth year and will feature nearly 100 works of visual and performing art from September 6 through November 15. Selected installations include works of sculpture, dance, murals, theater, outdoor concerts, parades, performance art, and more. Art on the Atlanta BeltLine turns the paved and interim hiking trails along the Atlanta BeltLine corridor into an outdoor gallery space, exemplifying the transformative nature of Atlanta’s largest redevelopment program. Public art is a fundamental component to the Atlanta BeltLine, along with transit, multi-use trails, streetscapes, greenspace, economic development, affordable housing and environmental remediation. The kickoff event for Art on the Atlanta BeltLine will be the Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade on the evening of Saturday, September 6.

“The Atlanta BeltLine is presenting public art on an entirely new scale for Atlanta,” said Paul Morris, President and CEO of Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) “This year, with the help of our incredible partners and sponsors, we are able to bring more art and artists than ever to the Atlanta BeltLine. We are looking forward to making year five of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine the best yet.”

“The City of Atlanta is excited to partner with Art on the Atlanta BeltLine for a fifth year,” said Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA). “Public art is vitally important to the culture of a community, and the Atlanta BeltLine has firmly established its role as a place of community and connectivity for Atlanta.”

ABI and OCA worked together to distribute a call for artists earlier this year. Applicants were asked to propose temporary works of art that represent the spirit of the exhibition. More than 240 proposals were submitted with nearly 100 visual and performance pieces selected. The selection panel reviewed proposals for artistic merit, concept originality, feasibility and community engagement. These temporary installations are in addition to the continuing exhibition that is part of the Atlanta BeltLine.

For the fifth year in a row, U.S. Micro is the presenting sponsor for Art on the Atlanta BeltLine and funding is also provided by The Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs and the Fulton County Arts Council, in addition to other private donors and sponsors. The Atlanta ToolBank is providing tools to support art installations.

The Art on the Atlanta BeltLine working group includes volunteers from Atlanta BeltLine neighborhoods, local artists, and organizations such as WonderRoot, Eyedrum, Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, the BeltLine Network, and the City’s Office of Cultural Affairs.

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

  • On the northern Eastside interim hiking trail between Montgomery Ferry Road and Monroe Drive
  • On the Eastside Trail between Monroe Drive and Irwin Street
  • On the southern Eastside interim hiking trail between Wylie Street and Memorial Drive in Reynoldstown
