Art on the Beltline announces fall season

Art on the Atlanta Beltline, one of the largest temporary public art exhibits in the Southeast, returns Sept. 6 through Nov. 15, featuring nearly 100 works of visual and performance art. The yearly exhibit takes place outdoors, along the abandoned rail bed that has been reclaimed as a necklace of multi-use trails and public parks.

The sculpture, dance, murals, outdoor concerts and theatrical presentations transform the corridor into an outdoor gallery space. The season kicks off on the evening of Sept. 6 with the Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade. Exhibits during the fall will be concentrated on the northern eastside interim hiking trail between Montgomery Ferry Road and Monroe Drive; on the eastside trail between Monroe Drive and Irwin Street; on the southern eastside interim hiking trail between Wylie Street and Memorial Drive; and on the westside trail between Washington Park and Allene Avenue.
