Art On the Beltline
September 15, 2011
Art on the Atlanta Beltline officially opened last weekend with a series of performances and the unveiling of dozens of new artworks. Art on the Beltline expanded in 2011 to include work by 66 artists, about double 2010's output. This year the art is concentrated in two main stretches of the 22-mile loop of proposed parks, trails and transit: on the eastern edge mostly between Memorial Drive and DeKalb Avenue and behind Piedmont Park, and along the southwestern stretch, with clusters of art and behind Langhorn Street and around Washington and Adair parks, which bookend the section.

Finally, CL and the Beltline have teamed up for a scavenger hunt in October involving secret clues, sleuthing, and sweet, sweet prize packs. You can play as a team or an individual Sat., Oct. 15, and you'll need a smart phone: think roaming gnome meets public art meets Atlanta transit project. Sounds fun, right?
