Art on the Atlanta BeltLine Performance Finale

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine performances came to an exciting close on the weekend of October 18 and 19. The beautiful weather and awesome lineup came together to create two great days of events that hundreds of people came out to enjoy (see the full photo gallery here.) Saturday’s show in Gordon White Park started with three dance routines: Corian Ellisor, Edeliegba, and Staibdance. Esther de Monteflores then took the stage and impressed the crowd with her incredible acrobatics, and the Atlanta Taiko Project made their Art on the Atlanta BeltLine debut with Japanese “Taiko” drumming.

Though the performances are over, the exhibition isn’t! Visual art will remain on the trails through mid-November, and the continuing exhibition will remain after that. Check out all of the photos from these amazing performances in our photo gallery.
