As the spring semester gets underway, and the COVID 19 vaccine becomes available to members of our campus community, as well as residents and visitors across our region, the staff of the Turchin Center are working to develop a timeline for the public re-opening of our facility, in a way that ensures the health and safety of all. We look forward to announcing these plans shortly. In the meantime, we continue to provide access to our galleries and programs through our website, walk-through videos, online ARTtalks, learning guides and virtual workshops. We invite you to take advantage of these online virtual resources, and look forward to welcoming you back to the Turchin Center soon!  More information about the university guidelines
