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 – 5 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.
