Truckee Luxury Property is a sponsor of the first annual “a TOAST to Truckee’s Creative Community.” This is a 10-day collection of art and culture events throughout the Town of Truckee featuring creative experiences that are interactive or offer behind-the-scenes access to artists or the creative process. The signature event is the Truckee Open Art Studios Tour on July 17, 18, & 19 and July 24, 25, & 26 10am to 5pm daily. There are 28 artists on this Tour in 15 studios. The studios are located throughout Truckee neighborhoods with all of them within 10 minutes of Historic Downtown Truckee.
There are six special events and seven workshops throughout the 10-day period, starting with a photography workshop by Grant Kaye tonight. All of the details are available on the CreativeTruckee.org website.
