This weekend, the Atlanta BeltLine Westside Trail will be a place to experience a range of artistic expression.

“BeltLine After Dark x Music in the Park” will be a multifaceted program with a music stage, avant-garde stage and roaming performers. The free event will be held from Oct. 18 to 19 at several different locations along the trail.

Atlanta BeltLine Arts and Culture Project Manager Miranda Kyle and TILA Studios founder Tiffany Latrice spoke with “City Lights” Senior Producer Claire Reynolds about the event.

“One of the reasons we think it’s so vital to have art on the BeltLine is the opportunity for practice translation. It’s to find these incredible artists who have a wonderful, vibrant or emerging studio practice and inviting them to think outside. Literally,” Kyle said.

Here’s the schedule for the event based on the Atlanta BeltLine’s website.
