With two performance weekends already on record as some of the highest attended events in the history of the exhibition, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is off to a fantastic start! Check out what you may have missed below, and mark your calendars for our final performance weekend on October 18 and 19.
The 2014 Lantern Parade set off the exhibition in a burst of light and color on Saturday, September 6. On September 7, we followed it up with a relaxing afternoon of music and dance on the Westside Trail. Contemporary dance and spoken word complemented the blues, smooth jazz, and hip-hop sounds of the concerts.
On Saturday, September 20, performances continued in Historic Fourth Ward Park, but with a bit of a different vibe. The day opened with the “No Tables, No Chairs” parade and was followed by “Class on the Grass,” getting the crowd moving and making music with African dance and drum lessons. The day’s events also included spoken-word break-dancing, dance, crafts, and a silent film screening concert.
Nothing exemplifies the diversity of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine quite like Sunday’s performances in Reynoldstown. On the unpaved portion of the Eastside Trail behind H. Harper Station, the performances featured everything from an interactive dance installation, break-dancing, and acrobatics, to crafting and live painting.
If you missed these acts, you have another chance to check out Art on the Atlanta BeltLine performances in October. If you came and you loved what you saw, come back and see what else we’ve got in store, and tell your friends! Check out the full schedule here.
