The National Endowment for the Arts has awarded a $10,000 grant to the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership for public art on Atlanta’s largest multi use trail.
According to a press release the Art Works grant, “focuses on the creation of art that meets the highest standards of excellence, public engagement with diverse and excellent art, lifelong learning in the arts, and the strengthening of communities through the arts.”
The Art on the Atlanta BeltLine project is the largest temporary public arts exhibition in the city, the press release says. The exhibition is held each fall
“The exhibition showcases how art strengthens and beautifies current and former industrial areas and creates signature spaces exemplifying the transformation of the city through the Atlanta BeltLine,” the press release says. “Art on the Atlanta BeltLine is programmed by Atlanta BeltLine, Inc. and receives support from the Atlanta BeltLine Partnership and public and private donors.”
