Art on the BeltLine call for artists’ submissions for 2011!
The Atlanta BeltLine has put out their call for Art on the BeltLine 2011! Are you an artist who would like to be a part of Atlanta’s biggest temporary art project? Last year’s Art on the BeltLine was a huge success and we’re looking forward to another strong year of visual and performance arts!
Get the full request for proposals on the Art on the BeltLine website here! Submissions are due on March 28, 2011.
Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. is again presenting the public art initiative, “Art on the Atlanta BeltLine.” Artists are
invited to submit proposals for temporary works of visual and performing art to be a part of this event,
scheduled to take place September through November of this year.
In its first year, “Art on the BeltLine” became the largest temporary art project in the history of Atlanta.
Including over 270 visual artists, performers, musicians and historic preservationists, it was a
tremendous success, placing established and emerging artists together on the Atlanta BeltLine.
Now we are looking to do it again, to engage more artists, to bring more Atlantans into the corridor, to
merge art with landscape and to ensure that the Atlanta BeltLine is enjoyed by all.
The Atlanta BeltLine is an emerging system of parks, trails, transit and development that reclaims
abandoned railways. With an emphasis on cultural amenities and revitalizing neighborhoods, it has the
potential to redefine the city and make it a better place to live. Find additional information about the
Atlanta BeltLine at http://www.beltline.org.
Potential projects should reflect the historic, environmental, cultural, functional, urban design, and/or
aesthetic parameters of the sites and should be well-researched, well-planned and feasible. Although
not limited to the following examples, potential projects might include all or some of the following:
- Temporary art, sculptural or visual installations
- Gateway or entrance works
- Performance works of all kinds, including but not limited to music, dance, theater and performance art
- Transformation of existing structures or surfaces, such as bridges and overpasses
- Utilization of fences or screening devices
- Amenities for visitors – such as benches, bike racks, shade structures, recycling and trash collection receptacles
- Establishment of play areas or game sites
- Loan of existing artwork, such as sculptures or assemblages
- Plantings or environmental works
