Lantern Parade begins 2014 Art around the Atlanta BeltLine
Sturdy souls who attended early Art around the Atlanta BeltLine occasions clambered over abandoned rail lines and industrial right-of-ways. In those days, the thought of a twenty-two-mile transit loop through town appeared as whimsical because the kinetic sculptures displayed. Exactly what a difference a couple of years (and a few paving) makes: This past year, greater than 10,000 people required part within the kickoff Lantern Parade across the Eastside Trail.
The 2014 art program covers roughly eight miles from the route and can include temporary installations, permanent inclusions in the BeltLine’s public art collection, and a number of performances. You’ll are able to preview yet-to-be-paved parts of the path and, yes, join the lantern-toting throng.
