"Art on the Atlanta Beltline" wraps up with a grand finale

 The first-ever art exhibition along the Atlanta Beltline corridor concludes this weekend with a whirlwind of events and performances celebrating Atlanta’s diverse art communities.

Since June, Atlanta Beltline Inc. and The Beltline Partnership have provided Atlanta residents with more than fifty installations and performances by local artists and given thousands their first look at the $2.8 billion redevelopment project as part of Art on the BeltLine: Atlanta’s New Public Place.

The exhibit garnered significant praise locally, with Atlanta’s premier alternative news source, Creative Loafing, honoring Art on the BeltLine in their 2010 “Best of Atlanta” issue. Readers voted the exhibit “Best New Trend in the Arts,” “Best Public Artwork” and “Best Public Art Event.”

As the five-month long festivities come to a close, residents are encouraged to take part closing ceremonies Saturday, October 2nd and Sunday October 3rd, which feature performances by Brooks Dance Company, the Sabor Brass Band and the Back Pockets.
