Abstract

Functioning as both a light rail transit project and comprehensive redevelopment program, the Atlanta BeltLine is widely expected to impact the city of Atlanta as profoundly did 1996 Olympic Games. In this paper, the Atlanta BeltLine is examined as a biopolitical project and the manners in which its public arts program, Art on Art on the Atlanta BeltLine, works to secure local consent redevelopment are explored.
