artbound 2

Artbound is MARTA’s public art program, dedicated to helping you enjoy the ride! With engaging visual art, dance, theater, and live music, we hope the stations will feel like destinations in themselves, a place to see or hear something that brightens your day! Stay updated on all things Artbound by signing up for our email list here: artbound@itsmarta.com 

Goes LIVE!

In November 2017, we launched our station music program: Artbound LIVE, where the top-ranked musicians from Talent on Track played live in the stations for you during November and December. We hope it made the trip feel more festive and the station feel a little warmer. You might have caught a performance at West End, H.E. Holmes, Five Points, Lindbergh, North Springs or Kensington. Look for more to come in spring!

Midtown Station 

What's New

Artbound and the Midtown Alliance are partnering to re-think the plaza at Midtown Station, and of course that includes public art! An open call for muralists was put out in January, and a group was shortlisted in early February to provide proposals. The resulting artwork will enliven the plaza, and the overall plan will also include new seating and live music offerings!

En Route to the Finish Line

Artbound and Wonderroot, with the help of the Blank Foundation and the Transformation Alliance have collaborated on another incredible mural by Fahamu Pecou, with assistant artists Danesha Claxton and Fabian Williams. The People Could Fly, based on a traditional folktale of hope, is a new installation on the outside of Ashby Station facing Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard. Wonderroot and MARTA will throw a community block party in March to celebrate the mural’s arrival!
