Call for Artists

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.

Call for Artists

Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. commissions over 100 artists in contribution to and support of the arts industry, which has a $2.2 billion impact in Georgia. Artists submit proposals every spring and undergo a juried process to determine selection for the annual exhibition.  The proposal period for the 2017 exhibition is now closed. Artists interested in submitting for visual or performing for the fall 2018 show should check art.beltline.org in early 2018, and follow the exhibition on social media. In the meantime, check out the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine exhibitions from 2010-2017 →
