The art scene is thriving in Boone and the surrounding areas of the High Country. We are located just one mile from downtown Boone where you will find tons of great large and small art galleries, a large museum, and a handful of great performance art facilities. Appalachian State University is a great cultural resource and provides endless projects from inspiring students and visiting performers, lecturers and artists. Also, the first Friday of each month the town of Boone hosts an Art Crawl Boone NC where downtown galleries, boutiques and some eateries host an open house types of events and many stay open later hours and host artists. During Art Crawl Fridays in Boone there is almost always live bands and music available at various locations.
The Turchin Center for the Visual Arts is located on King Street and is a fantastic museum that features rotating artists and student works. The Jones House is also a great place to view local art and it is a stunning, well preserved historic home found along King Street. The Jones House lawn and front porch also host weekly live music entertainment from local and regional bands during the spring, summer and fall.
During the fall months, the ASU Performing Arts Series brings weekly concerts, speakers and other cultural acts to campus and these are great events to attend. Also, in the summer months ASU hosts the Appalachian Summer Festival events which are equally entertaining and worth mentioning.
