PRESS RELEASE

$40,000 donated to support 2023-2024 art season

ATLANTA, GA (March 7, 2024) – Nonprofit cultural arts organization Woodstock Arts has awarded JW Collection’s South on Main neighborhood with a certificate of premier partnership, recognizing its $40,000 commitment to support the 2023-2024 season. South on Main has also been named the presenter of the Woodstock Arts Gala, a formal dinner to be held on April 13 on the Woodstock Arts Event Green to raise funds for the local arts. This is South on Main’s second year as a partner for the nonprofit.

The partnership will support Woodstock Arts’s various programming throughout the year including performing arts productions, outdoor concerts, visual arts exhibits, cultural events, classes and camps. A full scholarship will also be offered to a student in need to attend Woodstock Arts’s summer camps. Additionally, South on Main is working with Woodstock Arts to bring special theater and musical performances to South on Main’s neighborhood stage at its open-air gathering pavilion, The Shed.

John Wieland, the legendary home builder behind South on Main, is a strong advocate for the arts, having amassed a private collection of more than 400 contemporary works focused on the theme of house and home. The collection will soon be available to the public at The Warehouse, a recently renovated 39,000-square-foot art space opening this April in Atlanta’s growing Westside District.

“Art has been a passion of mine since my wife and I acquired our first piece shortly after we were married,” said Wieland. “At South on Main, we channel this passion into creating beautiful architecture through the belief that art and homes have the power to bring comfort and belonging. Through our partnership with Woodstock Arts, we look forward to introducing new art-focused programs, events and experiences to the community.”

In May 2021, JW Collection provided pro bono services to construct the Woodstock Arts Reeves House Visual Arts Center, which features rotating art exhibits, an art studio for classes, and a coffee shop and wine bar. JW Collection began construction in 2015 on South on Main, the master-planned neighborhood located steps away from Downtown Woodstock. The meticulously designed neighborhood features charming new homes and townhomes, 20 acres of parks and green space, a large swimming pool, a 6,000-square-foot clubhouse known as The Shed, and a community garden.
