The Beginning

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 2017, the number of selected projects had grown to include more than 100 works. View our full roster of contributing artists.

Through the Years

In 2017, more than 1.87 million people visited the Eastside Trail, and Atlanta BeltLine trail users are at the forefront of this year’s exhibition. Art pieces seek to enhance the visitor’s sense of discovery and adventure through street-style performances, art-making along the trails, interactive art, and works that embody navigating urban space as an experience as well as a place.

We are thrilled to include four miles of added gallery space on the newly finished Westside Trail and Eastside Trail extension! Previously, these interim hiking trails featured Art on the Atlanta BeltLine exhibits. Now, several miles of paved, multi-use trails are complete and open, making Art on the Atlanta BeltLine more accessible to all.

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.

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. Major support for this project is provided by the City of Atlanta Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs. Major funding for this organization is provided by the Fulton County Board of Commissioners. This project is also supported in part by an award from the National Endowment for the Arts.
