– To our Valued Patrons and Partners – 


Times are uncertain, but we certainly appreciate you! 

Based on the most recent guidance from the State of California, the Carnegie Arts Center is adjusting our re-opening plan once again. We had hoped to be able to open our galleries on July 8th with two new exhibitions – the 2020 Carnegie Art Showcase and Yosemite Renaissance 35.  Unfortunately, new guidance from the Governor’s office has called for temporarily closing “indoor museum” activity due to increasing community spread of COVID-19.

We will postpone opening our exhibitions to the public until July 22 to comply with the current directive that has been established for a three-week period. The Carnegie Art Showcase will debut soon in our Virtual Exhibition Gallery (click on the tab for Exhibitions above) as we continue wait for instructions on when we can open our galleries for live visits. For those eager to see the Yosemite Renaissance exhibition, you can visit their website where the images are all available for viewing.

In the meantime, we plan to continue to have our Gift Shop and office open under guidelines for retail establishments. You can visit us to shop, enroll your child in Summer Art Camp, pay your membership renewal or make a donation.

At this time our Summer Art Camp schedule will go forward, with the limited capacity and safety protocols already in place. Please do not hesitate to call us if you have any questions or concerns.

We are all eager for the day when we can welcome everyone to see and experience the incredible artwork that has been assembled in these exhibitions. Watch our Facebook page or sign up for our email list to stay up to date.
