Arts & Entertainment Atlanta
Arts & Entertainment Atlanta is a neighborhood activation and economic development project for Downtown Atlanta. AE fuses new outdoor media, local art, and advertising and funds cultural and public space programming in the city’s core. By creating light, vitality, and activity, AE authentically reflects the vibrancy of Atlanta as a whole. The District is managed by the Atlanta Downtown Improvement District (ADID) and self-funds its management and programming through revenue sharing agreements with media companies within the District.
AE is a fusion of art and advertising. This cultural innovation effort blends new outdoor media, local art, accent lighting, and digital and static signage to activate buildings and blank walls and infuse the Downtown neighborhood with light, art, and cultural programming. As the physical and symbolic center of the city and the region, Downtown’s newest vibrancy effort will redefine Atlanta’s culture and brand.
Proposals for new or conversion Arts & Entertainment Atlanta signage will be accepted by ADID from qualified media companies or property owners at any time. Click here for details regarding the proposal application process and requirements.
