THE FUTURE OF TURNER HOUSE: ART HOUSE + CAPITAL CAMPAIGN


ART HOUSE + CAPITAL CAMPAIGN

From the beginning of the Oak Cliff Society of Fine Arts, its purpose has been to promote interest in the arts, architecture, historic preservation, and civic and philanthropic enterprises. The Society’s home, the historic Turner House, offers an ideal setting for discussions and reflections on history and the arts. Our goal is to reach an ever-broadening audience looking to engage creatively, explore shared histories, and actively connect with their communities – a 21st Century version of the Turner House builder, Mr. Blake, who hosted art and cultural events at his home with the local orchestra performing on the front balcony for everyone to hear.

ART HOUSE + CAPITAL CAMPAIGN PART 1

Funded priority improvements and repairs to Turner House, our home, built in 1912 and one of four founding houses built for the Winnetka Heights Neighborhood development.

Phase 1 - $250,000

Rebuilt the west and north eaves and roof
Rebuilt the Porte Cochere 
Repaired and painted exterior walls on north and east sides

Improved drainage around house foundation and basement




CAMPAIGN PHASE 1 MAJOR DONORS
