A World of Art within Our World

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is the City of Atlanta’s largest temporary public art exhibition and a testament to the Atlanta BeltLine as a living, breathing entity that is more than just trees, trails, and rails. Showcasing the work of hundreds of visual artists, performers, and musicians along nine miles of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor, the exhibition is a powerful conduit for everyone in the Atlanta region to gather, connect, and experience something vibrant and dynamic. This spectacular project places working professionals alongside emerging artists, and draws residents and visitors into some of the most unique public spaces in the City of Atlanta, providing powerful new perspectives on the city and its vibrant neighborhoods.

The exhibition showcases how art strengthens and beautifies current and former industrial areas and creates signature spaces exemplifying the transformation of the city through the Atlanta BeltLine. Art on the Atlanta BeltLine touches almost 20 intown communities.

History of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine

In the summer and fall of 2010, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine began by exhibiting more than 40 unique works of visual and performance art. Art installations and historic site interpretations adorned the corridor from June through October, with more than 30 performances bringing thousands of Atlanta residents onto the Atlanta BeltLine. In 2011, the number of projects increased by over 30 percent and included more than 330 individuals presenting 66 visual and performance pieces.

By 2013, the number of selected projects grew by over 40 percent from the first year to include more than 70 works. View the full roster of artists from 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.

The exhibition typically runs from September through November each year. Visual installations and performances are concentrated in the following areas along the Atlanta BeltLine:

  • West Side: From Gordon White Park north to Washington Park
  • West Side: From Allene Avenue to Lee Street
  • Eastside Trail: From Lake Avenue / Irwin Street north to the intersection of 10th Street and Monroe Drive and then north to Montgomery Ferry Drive
  • Eastside Trail through Reynoldstown: From Wylie Street south to Memorial Drive

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is produced by a working group of more than a dozen committed volunteers from Atlanta BeltLine neighborhoods, historic preservationists, and organizations such as WonderRoot, Eyedrum, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc., the City’s Office of Cultural Affairs, The Atlanta BeltLine Partnership, Atlanta City Council and the Fulton County Arts Council.
