A diverse group of Cherokee County artists, interested citizens, and business leaders have developed a comprehensive plan that includes the restoration of a century old, historic farmhouse into a visual arts village featuring galleries, artist studios, and classroom space.
The complex will also include the Elm Street Theater for conducting live performances and acting classes, as well as hosting special events and community festivals.
The site, on 4+ acres is just one block off Main Street in Woodstock, GA., will accommodate a cultural arts complex, a significant new city park, gardens, and green-space -- all in the heart of downtown. The location of the site is adjacent to the city’s new Greenprints Trail, providing access to the village for both pedestrians and bikers using the new recreational trail system.
