What do an iconic 1911 home – recently renovated, an urban farmhouse that defines country charm, a two-story home that features elegantly appointed rooms, and a one-level contemporary home with an emphasis on outdoor living spaces have in common? All are included in the Carnegie Arts Center’s Art of Design: Home & Garden Tour this spring.
This exciting weekend of events takes place on May 12-13. Our Twilight Tour evening fundraiser on Friday includes local cuisine, wine & beer, and a preview look at the first floor and grounds of the largest of this year’s featured homes. Saturday’s Home & Garden Tour includes admission to four uniquely designed homes – inside and out. Located within just 2 miles of each other, these homes represent a variety of styles, functions, and sizes, and are sure to pique the interest of design-loving visitors. Explore some of Turlock’s most-beloved neighborhoods, experience four unique aesthetics, and find something interesting around every corner!
On the tour you will see artwork in a few of the homes, provided by The Gallery Finesse. You’ll find some light refreshments and you may even encounter plein air painters. Explore some of Turlock’s most-beloved neighborhoods, experience four unique aesthetics, and find something interesting around every corner!

Proceeds from these events support the Carnegie Arts Center, one of the area’s most important cultural assets. With classes for all ages, a wide-ranging exhibition schedule in two galleries, lectures, films, concerts, theater, poetry and more, the Carnegie is the community’s resource for discovering and learning through the arts. Community support makes it possible for the Carnegie to provide much-needed opportunities in youth arts education, including scholarships for classes, transportation for school field trips, young artist exhibitions, and free family activities.
