Who We Are

Arts & Entertainment Atlanta = Creating Light, Activity and Vibrancy

A&E Atlanta 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, A&E Atlanta authentically reflects the vibrancy of Atlanta as a whole. 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.

The district self-funds its management and programming through revenue-sharing agreements with media companies within the district and is limited to a total number of 25 sign locations. Currently, there are eight active locations within the district each with one or more signs; some being digital displays and others static banners.

Arts & Entertainment Atlanta 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. An Advisory Council is in place, comprised of 14 individuals that represent the community, among them Downtown residents, business, entertainment, and arts + culture leaders.
