Invest in the ARTS at the Turchin Center!
The Turchin Center is the largest facility of its kind in western North Carolina, eastern Tennessee and southwestern Virginia featuring works of nationally and internationally renowned artists, as well as many of the finest artists of the region.
As a university museum that is free and open to the public, state funding provides some operating support, but it is not enough to keep our programming alive. The Turchin Center relies on the generosity of others who are dedicated to supporting the arts in Boone and beyond.
By becoming a donor, you provide critical funding not only for our exciting exhibits, but for all of our programming and events. You help create opportunities for people of all ages and backgrounds to experience the power and excitement of the visual arts.
Your support helps make many exciting special events available each year. We hope that, in addition to participating, you will consider making a tax deductible donation to your friends at the Turchin Center.
Together we will keep the arts alive for everyone to enjoy.
