The Carnegie Arts Center,  renovated and expanded  following a major fire in 2005, is housed in the historic Carnegie Library which first opened its doors in 1916. The new Carnegie, which re-opened in 2011, is now one of only a handful of professional arts centers in the region. The Carnegie’s programs include museum-quality exhibitions, educational classes and programs, and activities in artistic genres as diverse as dance, music, theater and more. At least 25% of all programming is dedicated to children and teens. The Carnegie Arts Center Foundation operates the center and is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization; all donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law.

The Carnegie is located at 250 N. Broadway in Downtown Turlock.

The Carnegie is open to the public Wednesday – Saturday 10 a.m. – 5 p.m., Friday 10 a.m. – 8 p.m., Sunday noon – 4 p.m.  Admission: $5 general; free for Carnegie Arts Center members, children 12 and under. Free admission for all on the first Friday of every month.

  1. Hello, I have a 16 year old brother interested in art, more specifically drawing. Do you guys offer any resources that could help him expand his skills?


    1. Thanks for asking! We don’t currently have any classes for 16 year-olds; most of our classes are geared toward ages 15 and under. We do have two drawing intensive summer classes scheduled, and we can check with the instructor about accepting a 16 year old if it seems like something he;d want to do. View the classes on our website (www.carnegieartsturlock.org/current-schedule) for details. Then feel free to email us, info@carnegieartsturlock.org with any additional questions.
