Art is all along the Atlanta BeltLine; this piece by RAUM (Katherine Wright Johnson and Bud Shenefelt) hangs from an overpass.

"Faces and Friends"

This display of street art called Faces and Friends by Kyle Brooks will remain as a permanent display along the BeltLine until further notice.

"Precious Predators"

Stephanie Coffin's mosaics are a familiar site around Atlanta. The outside of her in-town home has a mural dedicated to the 2010 oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.

"Gnomon II"

This large installation is by Mike Jensen, who is also an Atlanta photographer.

Urban Art

This untitled piece is by Atlanta artist Sarah Emerson, who also participated in a group show at the High Museum of Art called Drawings Inside the Perimeter.


This is a visual piece that served as the backdrop for a music video by singer Adron, which she created with Mario Schambon and Colin Agnew.

Lanterns on Parade

Each year, Art on the BeltLine kicks off with a lantern parade that winds along the trail and ends in Midtown Atlanta. The parade begins with a meet up at Irwin Street; 2012's event drew 1,200 participants.


People make paper lanterns at get-togethers all around town before the night walk along the Atlanta BeltLine.

Old Sears Building

2012's parade route passed the historic Sears building on Ponce de Leon, which has since been redeveloped into the mixed-use Ponce City Market.

Lighted Floats

Lantern-making events are held prior to the event.
