TCVA Advisory Board

Turchin Center for the Visual Arts Advisory Board members  serve the center by supporting the mission, acting as advocates, generating and developing friends, fundraising, acting as liaisons with other arts organizations and volunteering. A strong board is essential to the success and well-being of any arts organization, and the Turchin Center is no exception.  Since its opening in 2003, the TCVA Advisory Board has been a stalwart supporter and integral to the center’s growth and achievements.  The board is comprised of a diverse range of arts supporters and depends upon the unique qualities each member brings to their service.
