The booth celebrates and highlights our creative community of Truckee Cultural District in collaboration with Truckee Arts Alliance and Truckee Public Arts Commission (TPAC). Stop by the booth, in front of the Train Depot, and meet artists Ana Remis and Anders Edwards for the first Truckee Thursdays of the year on June 22nd.

Truckee Artist Lofts (TAL)  is a new mixed-use, affordable housing community for artists and the local workforce, located at the Truckee Railyard Project in downtown Truckee.

TAL’s common areas include an Art Room, Band Room, laundry facilities, and an outdoor common terrace with a BBQ picnic area as well as on-site parking.
