Atlanta BeltLine Seeking Qualified Planning Consultant for Implementation of Public Art
ATLANTA – Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) is extending the deadline to submit qualifications for the Art and Culture Strategic Implementation Plan. ABI is seeking technical proposals to develop a plan that will identify areas for potential art installations throughout the Atlanta BeltLine corridor.
This project is being developed through collaboration between ABI, the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, and the City of Atlanta. Funding for the plan has been provided by an Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA).
In its commitment to the arts, the Atlanta BeltLine has programs which showcase a diverse portfolio, from permanent sculpture and performance to the largest temporary art exhibit in the southeast. The historic rail corridor has become a linear, public gallery that connects 45 neighborhoods. ABI has a commitment to involve artists in design projects from the beginning of the project, ensuring that art is integral to the process.
Questions are due by January 6, and final submissions are due January 22. Complete details can be found in the Request for Qualifications at beltline.org.
