CARNEGIE ARTS CENTER
250 N. Broadway St.

Rebuilt and expanded by the city of Turlock, this state-of-the-art facility now hosts museum-quality exhibitions such as Ansel Adams: CALIFORNIA and Edgar Degas: The Private Impressionist, drawing visitors locally and throughout California. As a community arts center, the Carnegie is also grounded in the local community where works by area artists are exhibited continuously. In addition to galleries, the Carnegie boasts a fully equipped loft for performing arts presentations as well as classrooms and outdoor spaces. Its offerings are wide ranging — dance, theater, painting, drawing and photography.
