The only way is up for Art on the Atlanta BeltLine!
One of the best ways to experience art for free in Atlanta is checking out the ATL BeltLine. From unbeatable street art to stunning public sculptures, the Art on the BeltLine continues to deliver a show-stopping line-up of artists for the Southeast’s largest public display of art.
Pictured above is ‘Enfold pavilion’ by Zamila Karimi and Farhaan Samnani. The sculpture offers a versatile personal space for visitors of all ages to pause in its magical colorful atmosphere. The interactive experience hosts a topographical cloud of clear tiles floating in the air with messages/names of loved ones as a memorial during this challenging time.
Another glorious addition to this year’s sculpture collection is American Dream Series by Judith Hoffman (pictured above). Exposing ideas of “sanctuary” through sculpture, her work seeks to understand the materially fleeting but ideologically persistent “American Dream.”
Pictured below is Itti’ kapochcha to’li’ by Addison Karl. Next to the Old Fourth Ward Skate Park. Itti’ kapochcha to’li’ known as “little brother of war” is the Chickasaw name for a game also referred to as ‘stickball.’ Toli has been enjoyed by many of the Woodland Nations of the Southeast for thousands of years. This artwork is a celebration of generation after generation playing this game.
However, it doesn’t stop there. More sculptures are all set to take over the BeltLine. Click here to visit their website, and view this year’s sculpture collection, along with their exact locations.
In other BeltLine news, The City of Atlanta has received a generous donation that will provide the remaining funding needed to complete the Northwest BeltLine trails. And therefore the completion of the full 22-mile loop of the BeltLine itself. Click here for more information.
