Art on the Atlanta Beltline receives Award of Excellence from the AUDC

The Atlanta Urban Design Commission (AUDC) presented Atlanta Beltline, Inc. with the Award of Excellence for its Art on the Atlanta Beltline exhibition. Art on the Atlanta Beltline began in 2010 with only 40 exhibits; however, the exhibit has grown rapidly over the past six years and currently has over 300 submissions. And now with recognition from the AUDC, Art on the Atlanta Beltline is the largest outdoor temporary exhibition in the south to be awarded for excellence in works of public arts.

The  AUDC recognized 11 recipients in their specific categories — Art on the Atlanta Beltline winning in the Public Works of Art. The Award of Excellence is presented to programs, projects and individuals who significantly contribute toward the enhancement of  Atlanta’s built environment, while preserving the city’s heritage and balancing old development with the new. While the award proves to be a great honor for Atlanta Beltline, Inc., this is not the first time that the AUDC has recognized the development agency's efforts;  Atlanta Beltline, Inc. has accepted previous awards for the Eastside Trail, Historic Fourthward Park, and D.H. Stanton Park. 

Want to see the exhibit? Come to the Lantern Parade on Sep. 12!  Besides  filling the  the two-mile Eastside trail with music and lights (which sounds like more than enough fun in itself),  the parade also serves as the opening event for the  Art on the Atlanta Beltline exhibit. From September through November, visitors can experience visual art, music, and performances along the Atlanta Beltline corridor completely free of charge. Visitors can also explore parks and trails on the east and west sides of the city.
