Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is the largest temporary, outdoor public art exhibition in the south. The exhibition runs summer to summer and showcases the work of artists and art professionals, including murals, performances, sculptures, the residency program, and special projects. The public art residency program – the first of its kind in the City of Atlanta – debuted in 2019 with three positions designed to offer real-world exposure to the realm of public art and infrastructure: Artists-in-Residence, Curator-in-Residence, and Scholar-in-Residence.
Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. (ABI) runs the exhibition and associated arts and culture activities, which has brought visual and performing art to the Atlanta BeltLine’s parks and trails since 2010.
