First Friday at the Turchin Center

On the first Friday of every month (excluding January), the Turchin Center for the Visual Arts (TCVA) is open late as part of the Downtown Boone Art Crawl. Residents, visitors and the Appalachian State University community are invited to TCVA to experience the exhibitions featured in its seven galleries. Exhibitions change frequently so there is almost always something new to see. Meet friends, enjoy a glass of wine, and spend the evening with great art! The event is held from 6 – 9 p.m. and includes refreshments and a cash bar. Live music is often featured. The evening is free and open to the public.
