Ten minutes south of downtown Atlanta, right in the heart of historic Jonesboro, you'll find the Road to Tara Museum. This one-of-a-kind archive is dedicated to the epic masterpiece Gone With the Wind by Atlanta's favorite author, Margaret Mitchell. Housed in the 1867 train depot adjacent to the Jonesboro Welcome Center, the comprehensive gallery stocks an impressive inventory of Gone With the Wind book and movie memorabilia, including original props, costume reproductions, plate and doll collections, and a photo gallery.
ArtWorks on the Square is a so-called "creative village" showcasing photography, painting and fine art as well as hand-crafted jewelry, pottery and sculpture by local artists. The venue also offers regular art classes and camps and rents out 19 fully-equipped studios for local artists, potters and sculptors. Additionally, ArtWorks has recently started selling art supplies for aspiring creatives. Finally, a free BYOB art event called "Vino Van Gogh" is held every second Friday of the month for those of us who have never picked up a paintbrush. Express yourself and stop here today!
