BeltLine Walls, Volume 2
BeltLine Walls is the mural component of the exhibition. Muralists from Atlanta and beyond painted walls side-by-side alongside former railroad tracks on the Northeast (interim) Trail by Mason Fine Arts. See map inset. The 2019-2020 exhibition season kicked off with our mural festival, beginning July 21st. The festival culminated with a community opening and celebration on August 4th. Headlining was Serenbe Playhouse with selections from Hair! Families were invited to join the fun participating in a paint-bynumber mural by ARTlanta Gallery.
BeltLine Flow is the performance component of the 2019-2020 exhibition, comprised of pop-up style events, immersive interactions, and activations that celebrate the corridor and parks in a variety of locations. See art.beltline.org/events for the full schedule.
A City for All
The sculpture component of the exhibition, themed A City for All, is on display from August 2019 through June 2020. Artists were asked to consider the theme in their works.
BeltLine After Dark
A free, weekend-long festival centered around the Westside Trail. Music in the Park takes place in Gordon White Park; the historic Ashview Heights space will host dance, performance, theater, and a little magic on the Avant Garde Stage; and pop-up performances will take place along the trail.
Temporary works of art that have carried over from previous Art on the Atlanta BeltLine exhibitions. These include murals and sculptures that have a lifespan that can survive an outdoor environment.
Permanent and rotating sculptures from philanthropic funding sources that remain year-round. These pieces are often monumental in size, and reflect the character and history of the Atlanta Beltline as a former railroad corridor.
Art installations are presented along established and interim trail segments of the corridor, encompassing the Westside Trail, Southside Trail, and Eastside Trail. Explore our interactive map to locate the works.
Art & Culture Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP)
The Art & Culture Strategic Implementation Plan (SIP) moves beyond the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine exhibition to support strong, livable communities and increased creative activities along the Atlanta BeltLine. The purpose of the plan is to utilize the unique transformative potential of the Atlanta BeltLine to improve neighborhood connectivity and access to cultural amenities.
Atlanta BeltLine Inc.’s Public Art Program

The document is the first-ever comprehensive cultural plan for Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and is intended to serve as a roadmap to a more inclusive, equitable, and resilient cultural ecosystem. Its strategies support arts and culture around the corridor and delineate roles for Atlanta BeltLine stakeholders at all levels.
