The list of artists participating in the 8th annual Art on the Atlanta BeltLine event has been revealed, along with dates and details.
The 2017 edition will once again kick off with The Lantern Parade on Saturday, Sept. 9, at 8:15 p.m. at the Irwin Street entrance of the Eastside Trail. The exhibition of arts, as well as periodic live performances, will continue into October.
The lineup of artists features both new talent and returning favorites. Tray Dahl and the Jugtime Ragband are returning, representing the veteran musicians of Art on the Atlanta BeltLine. From France, Moz Drums returns with their visual and audio spectacle of percussion and light. Muralist Chris Veal will add his work to the corridor, while Ray Katz, Richard Herzog, and Mary Ruden have each proposed monumental sculptures to add to the landscape of the trail.
“The City of Atlanta is proud to support Art on the Atlanta BeltLine in its eighth year,” said Camille Russell Love, Executive Director of the Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA). “The linear exhibition represents the best of the city’s character and welcomes artistic talent from near and far.”
