As one of only a handful of arts centers in the Central Valley, the Carnegie Arts Center in the City of Turlock is a premiere visual arts center serving the local communities and the region as a whole. It operates according to core values and in keeping with its mission of bringing diverse community and regional audiences together to experience and celebrate art in all its forms. It plays a significant role in a revitalized downtown and promotes tourism for the betterment of the community. The Carnegie's programs include exhibits, education classes and programs, lectures, and activities in artistic genres as diverse as dance, music, theatre and more. At least 25% of its programming is dedicated to children and teens. Strategies for success include traditional fundraising as well as the imaginative use of local resources, including docents and volunteers and partnerships with other organizations to share or offset costs. Timelines, budgets and detailed information is available on the link below. It outlines how we have proceeded from prior to our grand opening to now on this path-finding effort to create an arts center that is both local and regional in its commitment and focus.
