Call for Artists Is Now Closed

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine call for artists is NOW CLOSED. Thank you to all applicants! Applications for this exhibition are accepted once annually.

The 2020-2021 call for artists closed on Friday, May 15, 2020 and jurors met virtually from May 27-28. They reviewed proposals for artists and art professionals (including murals, performances, and special projects), sculptures, and the Residency Program.


  • Scholar-in-Residence 
    The Atlanta BeltLine Scholar-in-Residence will produce a body of work to include a peer-reviewed academic white paper and a public presentation of their research findings. The Scholar will contribute to Atlanta BeltLine, Inc.’s (ABI’s) ongoing mission of equity, access, and inclusion by engaging in a thorough analysis of those topics as they relate to the city of Atlanta.
  • Curator-in-Residence
    Specific to the Art on the Atlanta BeltLine annual exhibition, the Curator-in-Residence will work with the ABI Arts & Culture, Community Engagement, and Communications teams to engage and publicize the body of work for exhibition on the Atlanta BeltLine.
  • Artist–in-Residence
    The Artist-in-Residence will develop a portfolio of work, culminating in a solo exhibition that will showcase the various sections of the Atlanta BeltLine corridor. ABI will retain the rights to at least one piece for its long-term foundational collection.

Each resident position will be eligible for a stipend for a six-month residency term. Timelines and deliverables are specific to each residency.
