“An authentic, charming mountain town with a rich history, Truckee is known as a welcoming, family-oriented community that attracts adventurous people with a passion for the outdoors and the environment.”
Lynn Saunders, Truckee-Donner Chamber of Commerce
By many measures, the Truckee-Tahoe region is a quality of life leader. As Lynn Saunders noted, its natural beauty and recreational opportunities make it a place of choice to live, work, recreate, and visit. What you many not know is that art and cultural organizations also have a notable presence in our region. Over the coming months, we will feature some of these organizations in our blog.
We are also fortunate to have a thriving community of visual artists, musicians, dancers, filmmakers, writers, poets, and dramatists. These artists are a vital and immeasurable component of our cultural and collective identify. They help us interpret our past, define our present, and imagine our future. Working artists make resonant contributions to the daily lives of our community members, not only as creators, but also as entrepreneurs, educators, and involved citizens.
If you choose to live and work in the Truckee-Tahoe area, I think you will be pleasantly surprised to find such a vibrant art and cultural community with creative opportunities for both children and adults. Stay tuned as we explore some of these amazing organizations and individuals in future blog posts.
