Getting tired of the same old boring commute to work? Spice your travels up with a landscape of metro Atlanta’s hottest summer art. Taking transit, walking or biking can be a great way to explore the city’s great public art scene.
Here are a few of our favorite art spots:
- Atlanta BeltLine- Take a walk or enjoy a nice bike ride down the BeltLine while exploring the numerous art installations scattered along the 33 mile trail. Be sure not miss Kyle Brook’s Faces of Friends, located under an overpass in Old Fourth Ward- one of our favorites. In need of a bike? Relay Bike Share is a great option for exploring the BeltLine.
- Path 400- Stroll along GA 400 through the heart of Buckhead and brace yourself for a whirlwind of inspiring street art. Check out the new mural series sponsored by Kaiser Permanente that stresses the importance of mental wellness. Hands down, a must see this summer.
- Krog Street Tunnel- If you’re into graffiti, prepare to be awed by the vibrant, ever-changing walls ofthe Krog Street Tunnel. Connecting Inman Park and Cabbagetown neighborhoods, Krog Street Tunnel has become one of Atlanta’s coolest spots for street art.
- MARTA Stations- Have your camera ready for two great Instagram spots when riding MARTA. Make a pit stop at the Decatur station and be blown away by the newly restored Larry Connatser murals. But don’t stop there, hop back on the train until you reach the Ashby Station, where you can see Fahamu Pecou’s The People Could Fly. You can also head up to Midtown and see the newest installation from local artist, Andrew Catanese.
Making the change to a clean commute option is easy, and summer is the perfect time to explore all of the incredible art metro Atlanta has to offer. Find a commute option that works for you at www.GACommuteOptions.com.
