A New Look at Art

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 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.

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine began in the summer and fall of 2010, with exhibitions of more than 40 unique works of visual and performance art. It was envisioned as a way to encourage people to get out and explore the Atlanta BeltLine in its interim hiking state – after rails were removed, but before concrete was poured. Seeing art along the way was intended to encourage visitors to keep walking and continue exploring. The artwork proved to be a very popular feature and, by 2016, the number of selected projects had grown to include more than 100 works. View our full roster of contributing artists.

The Lantern Parade

The Lantern Parade marks the beginning of the annual Art on the Atlanta BeltLine exhibition, the largest temporary art exhibition in the south. It has quickly become one of the most anticipated events on the Atlanta calendar.


Brought to you by Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is an inspiring way to explore this emerging system of parks, trails, transit and development that reclaims a 22-mile loop of historic rail lines around the city’s core. The exhibition runs from September through November each year.
