Visitors are invited for the Third annual BUMP Festival for mural tours and artist events as a flurry of new murals are being painted. Artists will be installing their works throughout the month.
BUMP self-guided mural tours are a perfect way to explore the murals and experience new works of art as they are being created right before your eyes. New tours will be released throughout the month of August.
The Beltline Urban Mural Project (BUMP) is a program that funds and installs art on buildings in the Beltline. Artists are selected through a proposal process, and any building owner can apply to be part of the project. BUMP launched in 2017, with four murals installed by four local artists.
Murals are installed on several buildings in the Beltline each year, and are clustered as much as possible to facilitate walking between them.
