Deadline: April 26 at 5 pm

Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is seeking visual artists, performance, musicians, lecturers and art historians to create art, activate culture and spread awareness throughout the year.

Celebrating its ten-year anniversary, Art on the Atlanta BeltLine hosts the largest temporary public art exhibit and linear gallery in the United States. With sculptures, murals, performances, and many multiorganizational collaboratives works year-round, the program strives to enrich and reflect the communities it serves. We endeavor to create a legacy of inclusion by encouraging historically excluded populations to participate in Art on the Atlanta BeltLine 2019 exhibition.

There are several components of the exhibition, according to program materials. More information on each can be found in the organization’s request for proposals. This year’s categories include:

  • BeltLine Walls Volume 2 – A partnership with MARTA’s ArtBound project to bring murals to the Atlanta BeltLine’s Northeast Trail, this event is a follow up to last year’s two-week-long mural festival. Located near the Lindbergh Center MARTA station, artists will work side-by-side on individual murals, with a final celebration at the end of the festival.
  • BeltLine Flow – These pop-up style events will activate and celebrate creativity within the corridor across numerous locations. Artists will be invited to perform throughout the timeframe of the exhibition.
  • Atlanta BeltLine Concert Series –These concerts will take place in several BeltLine parks including Historic Fourth Ward Park, Gordon-White Park, the multipurpose field at Historic Fourth Ward Skatepark and Piedmont Park.
  • A City for All – For this year’s sculpture exhibition, artists will consider the concept of A City for All. We are looking for innovative concepts, a sense of wonder, and a consideration of scale.
  • BeltLine After Dark – Artists and vendors will gather along the Westside Trail and event space at Gordon-White Park, Washington Park and Holderness on the weekend of October 18 and 19. This festival will be a celebration of arts and the autumn season.
  • Lecture Series – Artists and art professionals will sit on panels or offer individual discussions to address topics related to arts and culture, ethics and responsibility, equity, affordability, science and education as well as transit.
  • Special Projects – Any artist with a proposal that doesn’t fit any of the other categories is invited to submit proposals that use the Atlanta BeltLine to show projects, host a pop-up event or any other number of innovative ideas.
  • The program also seeks qualified Respondents in the following areas:  • Scholar-in-Residence • Curator-in-Residence • Artist-in-Residence

Electronic submissions will be accepted via art.beltline.org or by email to mkyle@atlbeltline.org, according to program materials.
