If you’re always on the look out for all-new public art on the BeltLine, then you’re in luck. The adored Arts on the Beltline program has given us a sneak peek into what we can expect from this year’s line-up of artists, murals, sculptures, and beyond.
Art and the Atlanta BeltLine are intrinsically entwined, playing a key part in the BeltLine experience for all locals and visitors who take advantage of our adored looping trail of the A.
In 2023, the BeltLine will showcase the 14th season of its juried public art exhibition, with several pieces and works popping up across the BeltLine throughout the year. From live performance art and dance to beautifully ornate sculptures, murals and more, Art on the BeltLine is an incredible way to witness art for free here in the ATL.
“Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is a living illustration of the vision we’ve long held for the BeltLine – a melding of people, cultures, communities and perspectives,” said Nonet Sykes, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc.’s Chief Equity and Inclusion Officer.
“The Atlanta arts and culture community in many ways has brought the BeltLine to life… expect a celebration of the cultural ways we’re unique in Atlanta, from hip hop to style writing movements and much much more.”
One of the first major BeltLine art projects of 2023 is its collaboration with the National Black Arts Festival (NBAF) and its NextGen Artist program, which gives students unbeatable, hands-on experience, with the chance to work with professional artists in order to transform our local schools, and give them new life with a vibrant makeover.
As well as this, you can expect all new mural installations along the trail, thanks to BeltLine Walls, their street art and mural program engaging youth artists from Parkside Elementary. For more information on this year’s line-up, click here to read the BeltLine’s full blog post.
