Dunwoody Arts and Culture
Dunwoody, GA, is widely known for its shopping and variety of high-quality restaurants, but it’s also home to a strong community of creative people who are helping to foster a growing arts-and-culture scene in this enclave of Atlanta.
Stage Door Players is Dunwoody’s favorite nonprofit theatrical troupe, performing quirky shows like “I Hate Hamlet” and “The Mystery of Edwin Drood,” in which audience members can participate in the productions by playing detective and solving the murder mystery.
Theater enthusiasts can also enjoy on-stage entertainment from the Dunwoody United Methodist Church and Kingswood United Methodist Church performers, and the Marcus Jewish Community Center of Atlanta (MJCCA) features a wonderful Arts and Culture Program that includes everything from visual arts to moving live performances open to all.
Local restaurants like Eclipse di Luna host hands-on painting classes complete with gourmet snacks and drinks, and to check out the works of some of the most talented local artists in the area, head to Dunwoody’s Spruill Center for the Arts, located in a historic farmhouse. This pillar of Dunwody’s arts community hosts creative workshops for locals and visitors, as well as a gallery of rotating exhibits, featuring considerable spaced dedicated to local artists and gifts for sale.
The support for the Arts spans throughout local retailers and businesses as well who proudly display beautiful artwork provided by the Dunwoody Fine Arts Association. Or, create your own masterpiece at Painting With A Twist, Dunwoody's own paint and sip experience. The creative possibilities are endless.
Dunwoody, Georgia, is also a quick train ride from downtown Atlanta, which offers cultural attractions like the Center for Civil and Human Rights, Center for Puppetry Arts, the High Museum of Art and much more. In fact, between local arts organizations and easy access to Atlanta, you can plan an entire visit to Dunwoody focused on exploring the arts.
