This is a real addition to the Turlock community. Offering Art of all forms. We have seen art exhabits, Poetry readings, music concerts and much more. Probably a jewel that many in the community are missing.

a wonderful place to see great plays and beautiful works of art. The newer section has been added on to the existing structure which was once the Turlock's Library of which you can still see the smoke damage from the fire that ravaged the library

Service dogs are permitted, of course. We do not allow pets in the galleries unless they are small, confined to a carrier and not creating an issue for other guests.
