Art on the Beltline

Big Projects, Beginning to End, Startle

The two-part sculpture, Startle, is up for all to see on the Atlanta Beltline’s East Side Trail at the entrance to Angier Springs. Check out the Art on the Beltline 2012 brochure to see all 56 artists! This exhibition has been crazy awesome to be a part of, as the whole Atlanta Beltline concept is fantastic and hugely supported by the local community. Gainesville may have the potential to adopt a similar model for a green space and temporary sculpture exhibition in the future?

I imagine the site looks much different than it did a couple weeks ago. So if you are able to visit the trail before the exhibition ends in early November, please post photos of Startle to my Facebook page at Leslie Tharp Designs

In the meantime you can follow the daily doings of each deer on twitter @HankStartle and @BambiStartle
