Duke Energy began sponsoring Free Tuesday in 2012 and has helped The Schiele provide exceptional educational and cultural resources to thousands of visitors and their families over the past seven years. The Schiele extends its hours until 8 PM on these evenings, allowing the community additional time to explore exhibits. Duke Energy’s sponsorship of Free Tuesday is a wonderful opportunity for the community to enjoy the museum throughout 2019.
