The lights have been off but the Turchin Center administrative staff has been hard at work behind the scenes. Because we need to keep our campus and community visitors healthy and safe during COVID-19, we are providing continuity of our programming by providing access to our galleries and programs through our website, walk-through videos, ARTtalks, learning
guides, and virtual workshops. The Turchin Center’s staff is available to assist students, faculty, staff and community members with digital information and online resources related to our exhibitions.
Connections: Exhibition Guides
Connections: Exhibit Guides are a comprehensive visitor resource that provides insight into the exhibitions in the galleries. They can be used in conjunction with a visit to the galleries or for those who are visiting remotely, as a guide for independent study. The guides include extensive information and images of the exhibition including the artist’s biography and statement, video links and provocations. Exhibit guides are provided in an interactive pdf format located in the exhibitions section of this website. The current and archived learning guides are also available below.
For more information, please contact the education staff at the Turchin Center, or:

ARTtalks / Lunch & Learns
ARTtalks are talks led by visiting or exhibiting artists, scholars and practitioners. These talks provide deeper insight into creative practice, context for current exhibitions or contemporary issues shaping the world in which art is created, experienced and interpreted.
The Lunch and Learn Lecture Series is part of An Appalachian Summer Festival and features interesting and informative virtual programming that provides a behind-the-scenes view of the festival’s offerings in the visual arts, music, theater and dance.

Rosen Self-Guided Tour
The Rosen Outdoor Sculpture Exhibition is a national juried sculpture competition. Each year, 10 contemporary American sculptures are selected from an abundance of entries and are installed in locations on the university campus. A self-guided walking tour map, a learning guide and QR codes on the signage adjacent to each sculpture provides in-depth information about the sculptures and artists who made them. The walking tour map is available at the front desk or can be found here along with the learning guide and a link to a video tour.
Virtual Gallery Tours
Take a journey through the galleries of the Turchin Center via video walk-throughs and artist interviews that tell stories and provide insight into the compelling and diverse artwork featured in the galleries. You can also view our Youtube Virtual Tour Playlist.
Explore your inner artist with a workshop! Take a break from school, work or a daily hectic schedule to practice some self-care and interact with other artists.
