The spectacular art on the BeltLine is about to level up
Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, the largest outdoor, temporary art exhibition in the south, has been awarded $40,000 from the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs Municipal Support for the Arts program, as well as $10,000 from the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA) Grants for Arts Projects award.
Funding will directly support the exhibition along 12 miles and in 20 communities surrounding the BeltLine corridor on the west, south, and east sides of Atlanta.
Although the trail around the city is known for its unbeatable street art, there’s also sculpture, temporary exhibitions, and live performances on offer throughout the entirety of the year!
“Now in its twelfth year, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is an integral part of the city’s arts and culture eco-system,” said Clyde Higgs, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. President and CEO. “We are grateful for the funding and recognition at both the federal and local level to continue to support artists, produce publicly-accessible art, and contribute to the arts economy.”
The Art on the Atlanta BeltLine linear gallery represents artists from across Atlanta, the nation, and the world. Works are found in a variety of mediums—sculpture, murals, dance, music, theater, photography, fashion, film, and anything you can possibly imagine.
