I am part of Art on the Atlanta Beltline 2017, and will be painting a mural on the side of a tunnel in southwest Atlanta, near the corner of Ralph David Abernathy and Muse St. SW
Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is the City of Atlanta’s largest temporary public art exhibition and a testament to the Atlanta BeltLine as a living, breathing entity that is more than just trees, trails, and rails. Showcasing the work of hundreds of visual artists, performers, and musicians along the Atlanta BeltLine corridor, the exhibition is a powerful conduit for everyone in the Atlanta region to gather, connect, and experience something vibrant and dynamic.
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. You can see more info at www.atl.beltline.org or through the hashtag #beltlineart on social media.
