Facility Rental Program

The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts offers a unique setting for special events and programs that would be enhanced by an exhibition setting. With a convenient location on the campus of Appalachian State University, the center is the largest facility of its kind in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee and southwestern Virginia, and is named for university benefactors Robert and Lillian Turchin. Featuring two wings of exhibition and support space, and the Arnold P. Rosen Family Education Wing, the center is located on King Street in the heart of downtown Boone, North Carolina.

The center boasts eight galleries featuring an ever-changing array of regional, national and international exhibitions year-round. While spaces are available for rental, the suitability for each space is dependent upon amenities and programming.

For a tour of the center or to inquire about its availability, please contact the front desk at 828-262-3017 or turchincenter@appstate.edu.
