Atlanta’s temporary public art project, Art on the BeltLine, needs your help with clean ups this weekend!

Art on the BeltLine needs your help on May 1st and 2nd in clearing and preparing artists’ installation sites on trails on the east and west sides of Atlanta! In addition to clearing artists’ specific sites, we will also pick up general trash as we prepare to launch temporary public art projects in June and to introduce people to newly opened sections of the BeltLine. We will meet at the intersections listed below on each day to be divided into teams and get tools before spreading out along the trail.

Please bring a reusable water bottle and gloves; tools will be provided.

  • The clean-up on the west side will be on Saturday, May 1st at 9 a.m. – meet at Gordon White Park.
  • The clean-up on the east side will be on Sunday, May 2nd at 1 p.m. – meet at the intersection of Somerset and the BeltLine.

Please visit the Hands on Atlanta site here for full details, directions, and to RSVP. You can also email me, Jenny, at jenny.p@mac.com.

Thanks so much to Gina with the Atlanta ToolBank, Kim with Hands on Atlanta, Keep Atlanta Beautiful, and the BeltLine team for helping to make these two Art on the BeltLine clean-ups happen!

About Art on the BeltLine:

Join us May through October 2010 as we celebrate the reawakening of old railroad corridor as Atlanta’s new public place with a kick-off arts event staged from late spring through summer. This spring, Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. plans to open nearly 8 miles of the future BeltLine corridor to pedestrians and off-road bicyclists via an interim trail. Visual arts, performing arts and historic site interpretation will direct the public’s attention to this amazing resource that encircles downtown Atlanta!  Potential projects are expected to include temporary sculptures and visual installations, environmental art, murals, transformations of building facades that border the corridor, public performances and more. There also will be a series of historic markers and way-finding signs to orient and introduce the public to Atlanta’s new linear greenway.
