Art Sign the BeltLine 2.0: 216 Beltline locations will be marked with a piece of art
In an effort to raise awareness of the proposed BeltLine, artists throughout Atlanta will create 216 pieces of art for placement at BeltLine and public right-of-way crossings. This initiative is the second of its kind. Last June, artists created 108 original works for the BeltLine.
This Saturday, February 20 at 12 p.m., artists will meet at the Eyedrum Art and Music Gallery to make art signs — in any style that they want — that will indicate a BeltLine crossing of a public right-of-way. All materials and supplies are provided, but artists are invited to bring their own paints and brushes. Later in the week, WonderRoot artists and volunteers will work throughout the night placing the art at each of the 216 locations.
“With much attention brought to the BeltLine over the past year, WonderRoot seeks to further raise awareness of the current and future impact of the BeltLine,” said Chris Appleton, Executive Director of WonderRoot. “We will also spread over 200 public artworks to all corners of the city.”
