Artist Statement

Beyond My Wildest Dreams is a multi-pronged performance and multi-media interface for the public to learn about the Atlanta BeltLine and dream big about its possibilities. Inviting the audience into the context of an imaginary future as they walk the corridor, Priscilla Smith adopts the persona of one of her Atlanta forebears to weave together stories of Atlanta’s history, urban legends, the tale of  the Atlanta BeltLine, anecdotes about surrounding neighborhoods, and the details of the brilliant amenities of this city and its future. The three distinct tellings will be on the southwest Atlanta trail and on the Eastside Trail.

View full details on Priscilla’s Eastside Trail walk on September 16 and her southwest trail walk on October 27.
