ATLANTA BELTLINE ART: Discovering the wealth of creativity in our own backyard!

Discovering the art in your own backyard can be so rewarding and satisfying! My Chiboogamoo and I journeyed to a part of the Atlanta Beltline we don't visit very often--the southern part of the east line near Memorial--and found such a rich environment along this part of the rails to trails and beyond!

Posted here are some of the "tastes" we experienced on a sun-drenched fall day. The breeze blew, visitors strolled, and we marveled at just how lucky we are to live here in Atlanta. Enjoy!

PART OF THE BELTLINE ART?  I'm not sure if this is random art or part of the Beltline Art exhibit. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
RANDOM ART?  Does it matter? I love it! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
LEAVING THE RAIL TRAIL.  On our journey, my Chiboogamoo had to trek awhile along the road leading to the amazing Krog Street Bridge, which then took us to our favorite part of the Beltline past the Old Fourth Ward and to Piedmont Park. Immediately when we left the trail we saw this beautiful mural. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
EVER PRESENT CONSTRUCTION.  Lots of construction going on surrounding the Atlanta Beltline. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
FALLEN ART.  It is slightly alarming to see an artist's work "fallen" or destroyed along the Beltline. I am glad I saw this work in its "newness" a couple of weeks ago. I am sure it will be repaired. (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
CLOUD SCULPTURE. Sorry that the Instagram made the sculpture yellow, when in fact it is nice and white! I am having fun seeing this sculpture at different times of the day.  (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
THE FAME STAGE.  Atlanta is a warm friendly place, especially along the Beltline. The creator of "Paying Your Dues Fame Stage" stopped his repair work to chat with us. Musicians sign up to play on this cart that is pulled by a bicycle.  (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
ART IS EVERYWHERE.  From the Atlanta Beltline, it is possible to see a lot of "building" art! How cool are these ants? And there were red ants too! (photo by Hallelujah Truth)
A really exciting surprise? Performances along the Atlanta Beltline! Check this short video out of work by Mausiki Scales and the Common Ground Collective: 

That's Coffee with Hallelujah! SOUL BLOG with me. Which images do you like the best? Why? Will you or have you journeyed out to the Atlanta Beltline? Do you have such a recreational place in your city?
