?Art on the Atlanta Beltline, the South’s largest outdoor temporary public art exhibition, is returning for its sixth year, and has sent out an official request for proposals from visual and performance artists.
Muralists, musicians, sculptors, dancers, theater professionals, and other visual, and performance artists are invited to submit potential project ideas which echo the Beltline’s character as a functional space and cultural presence. Proposals should be well-researched, thoughtfully planned, and achievable — but also unique and creative.

Like last year, the exhibition will kick off at the Atlanta Beltline Lantern Parade, which will take place on Sat., Sep. 12. Performances will be held on four weekends. It is essential that contributing artists and performers be available on those dates (Sep. 12-13, 19-20; Oct. 10-11). For those chosen to exhibit work, installations will begin in June
