Art on the Atlanta BeltLine celebrates the voices, experiences, and values of all Atlantans through the work of hundreds of visual artists, performers, and musicians along the Atlanta BeltLine corridor – touching almost 20 intown communities. Art on the Atlanta BeltLine began in 2010 as a way to encourage people to explore the Atlanta BeltLine in an interim state – after rails were removed, but before concrete was poured. All of the exhibitions and programming are free and open to the public, making art accessible to numerous communities around the Atlanta BeltLine. Participation in the exhibition also showcases the work of established and emerging artists from Atlanta and beyond.
Museum of Design Atlanta (MODA) is the only museum in the Southeast devoted exclusively to the study and celebration of all things design. MODA, (formerly known as the Atlanta International Museum of Art & Design) is a participating member of the Smithsonian Affiliate program, and examines how design affects our daily lives through engaging exhibitions, educational outreach, and special events designed to initiate conversation and community dialogue. MODA regularly features exhibitions highlighting architecture, industrial and product design, interiors and furniture, graphics, fashion and more. In 2003, MODA’s Board of Directors, staff, and community advisers made the collective decision to redefine the Museum’s mission and direction, and the Museum of Design Atlanta was born.
