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.
Pete Peterson and his Blues in the House band returned for the second time this year, followed by Music in the Park ATL. Zoetic Dance Ensemble and Candlestick Creative closed out Saturday night.
On Sunday, October 19, the long lineup at Historic Fourth Ward Park kicked off with Toni Marie Young’s “Class on the Grass,” a participatory African dance and drum class. The dance theme continued with contemporary performances by Core Performance Company and Crossover Movement Arts.
Esther de Monteflores and Atlanta Taiko drums returned on Sunday, and Kollaboration Atlanta made their second appearance at Historic Fourth Ward Park.
To round out the evening, Anonymous da Band returned for their third Art on the Atlanta BeltLine appearance, and Atlanta favorite Ruby Velle and the Soulphonics brought the performances to an awesome conclusion.
Candlestick Creative also made an evening appearance on Sunday, and DJ Salah Ananse kept the music going in between sets.
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.
