Thriving Metro-Atlanta Suburb Continues to Grow as an Artistic Hub, Offering Arts and Culture Events to Bring the Community Together
DUNWOODY, Ga. – (September 16, 2021) – Discover Dunwoody, the destination marketing organization (DMO) representing one of Atlanta’s thriving suburbs, today announced the return of its annual Arts & Culture Month. Taking place each October, Arts & Culture Month celebrates the rich art, culture and nature of the community with events and activities for residents and locals alike. With signature events such as Spirits for Spruill, performances at Stage Door Theatre and the addition of local art around various high-traffic areas in town, Dunwoody is quickly transforming into one of metro Atlanta’s most artistic suburbs, showcasing the unique talents that make up the community.
Throughout Arts & Culture Month, Discover Dunwoody will spotlight community partners that help amplify the cultural and artistic treasures the city has to offer. The fourth year of Dunwoody’s Arts & Culture Month promises continued celebration of the community’s art, culture and nature organizations, with a month full of events that will encourage recognition of the people and partners contributing to the rich art and culture in Dunwoody.
“We’re so excited to celebrate another Arts & Culture Month here in Dunwoody, especially after last year’s success and at a time when we could all use a little celebration,” said Kimberly Franz, marketing director for Discover Dunwoody. “Our community has so much to offer when it comes to the arts, from live performances to art exhibitions. We’re looking forward to immersing our guests and residents in the culture and artistic gems that make Dunwoody so special and seeing how our destination continues to grow as an artistic and cultural hub.”
Dunwoody looks forward to supporting its Arts & Culture Month partners as they offer activities, music and live performances to amplify the arts for all ages. With fall just around the corner and summer temperatures winding down, October is the perfect time to take in the fresh air and explore the exhibitions that contribute to Dunwoody’s diverse community. Below are just a few of the events taking place throughout the month, but enthusiasts are encouraged to visit DiscoverDunwoody.com/DunwoodyACM to view a full list of additional events that will activate creativity during this month-long celebration:

- Meander Through Murals – The City of Dunwoody’s efforts to include public art in the community have led to a mecca of murals, with new “Instagrammable” walls at Spuill Art Gallery and the Dunwoody MARTA station. These murals throughout the city reflect the bustling day-to-day life in Dunwoody and vibrancy of its citizens, inspiring both residents and visitors.
- Stage Door Theatre – After many months closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the performers at Stage Door Theatre are finally back, helping audiences escape to new worlds and immerse themselves in playful plotlines. Visitors can enjoy live performances such as the iconic “Romeo and Juliet” with a unique twist throughout October or get into the spirit of Halloween with “Halloween Cabaret,” a one-night event dedicated to celebrating Halloween with spooky songs and scenes.
“The Dunwoody community is very supportive of local artists, and I am honored to have painted one of my murals at Spruill Center for the Arts to inspire and enchant those who stop by,” said ‘Daydreaming’ mural artist Diana Toma. “Art is such an impactful way to bring the community together for a common good. I’m currently working on another public art piece in the City of Dunwoody, and I look forward to continuing to create pieces for everyone to enjoy, and to see how Dunwoody continues to grow its arts and culture scene. I am so thankful for Spruill Center and the Dunwoody community who support the work of so many local artists – we truly could not do it without them.”
