More than 900 feet of photography featured on the Eastside Trail installation
ATLANTA – Returning to Art on the Atlanta BeltLine for a second year, Atlanta Celebrates Photography (ACP), along with their partners at United Photo Industries of NY, exhibits their photo gallery “The Fence.” The photographic installation features over 900 feet of internationally submitted photos displayed along walking paths and bridges throughout the nation. Entering its fourth exhibit year, “The Fence,” which features a dedicated Atlanta-specific welcome letter with information on ACP and the Atlanta BeltLine, can be seen along the Eastside Trail for the duration of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine. While on display in Atlanta, a duplicate installation will also be exhibited at the Brooklyn Bridge Park in New York City, the Rose F. Kennedy Greenway in Boston, and the Houston Center of Photography. “The Fence” has received a combined audience of over 1.5 million visitors, and more information about the exhibit can be found at fence.photoville.com.
October marks the annual Atlanta Celebrates Photography Festival, now in its 17th year. The festival is the largest community-oriented photography festival in the United States with events and exhibits that take place all over the metro region. The most up-to-date information on the festival can be found at FestivalGuide2015.ACPinfo.org.
Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, now in its sixth year, kicked off on September 12 with the Atlanta BeltLine Lantern Parade. Featuring the work of more than 100 visual and performing artists, the exhibition brings local, national, and international artists to more than four miles of linear outdoor gallery space along the Eastside Trail. This year’s exhibition features many artists whose pieces are centered within social and community issues, and “The Fence” explores and defines the meaning of community across cultural boundaries and geographical lines. The exhibition runs through mid-November and features murals, sculptures, photography, and other interactive installations. For more information, please visit: art.beltline.org.
