An Atlanta Arts and Entertainment District has been proposed for Downtown Atlanta. 

The idea is to feature outdoor media while commercializing and promoting events on buildings in a creative way that will create light, vitality and activity downtown. Digital signage and media will be featured in the center of the city to help grow and evolve the active marketplace. 

Benefits include: 

  • Public gathering spaces that are enjoyed day-in and day-out using the signage as the venue and leveraging the talents of Atlanta’s diverse and thriving music, art and sports culture.
  • Increased economic and nighttime activity in Downtown supported and financed by the District. 
  • Activation of currently blank walls on buildings and parking decks in Downtown utilizing innovative, creative and engaging media techniques.
