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.

Atlanta BeltLine walk on the west side this weekend, February 27th!

This weekend’s BeltLine walk on February 27th, 2010 will be awesome – and you should be there! Whether you are an artist answering the call for artists’ submission for Art on the BeltLine, or a volunteer interested in bringing the BeltLine to life, or you’re just curious to see what all this fuss about transit and trails is all about, you should come out!

BeltLine Art: come put your signature on the BeltLine with hand-painted signs!

Last summer, dozens of Atlantans came out for the Signing of the BeltLine – a grassroots project that involved 108 plywood boards, hand-painted and hung two-to-a-crossing along the entirety of the Atlanta BeltLine. Did you wonder what those signs were? Did you wish you’d been able to participate? Well, it’s happening again! Whether or not you’ve wielded a paint brush before, your help is needed! Especially since the goal is to double the number of signs to 216 to place four at each of the BeltLine’s 54 crossings!

Calling all artists for the Atlanta BeltLine’s first temporary public art event: Art on the BeltLine

The Atlanta BeltLine is inviting Atlanta artists and residents to rediscover our historic rail corridors as they are transformed into the future of Atlanta’s transit! Coming this June 2010, the BeltLine will launch a massive public art event taking place along the eight miles of open hiking trail. “Art on the BeltLine: Atlanta’s New Public Place” will showcase visual arts, performing arts, and historic site interpretation to direct the public’s attention to this amazing resource that encircles downtown Atlanta, thus increasing the level of awareness and fostering a sense of ownership to ensure that the BeltLine becomes a truly public amenity.

Have you volunteered with the BeltLine this year? We want your feedback! And we’ll feed you, too.

Are you one of the many people who volunteered with the Atlanta BeltLine at local festivals over the past two years? Next week, the BeltLine is hosting an end-of-year event for all of our volunteers to meet each other as well as the BeltLine staff and to ask everyone how we can improve your volunteer experience.
