Arts For the Schools and the Town of Truckee are pleased to announce a new art program, “Student Art in Public Places,” starting this month at the Truckee Town Hall. Students worked with local Artists-in-Residence Nancy Lopez, Anke Hass and Cathee van Rossem St. Clair to create the featured artwork, which will be displayed throughout the year.

“Student Art in Public Places” is a collaboration between The Town of Truckee and Arts For the Schools, with local students and professional artists. This first exhibit will feature Ms. Markheim’s third grade class from Glenshire Elementary School. New classes and projects will be featured throughout the year.

According to Arts For the Schools Executive Director, Melanie Kauffman, “Arts For the Schools is delighted to showcase student art and partner with the Town of Truckee which will make our public space enjoyable and enhance the quality of life in Truckee. Through this public art project, children will experience a sense of accomplishment when their creativity is shared with others, and local government will demonstrate their support of art and culture in our community.”

The opening show reception of “Student Art in Public Places” will be held at the Town Hall building located at 10183 Truckee Airport Road, Truckee on Thursday, Nov. 20, from 5 to 6 p.m. Everyone is welcome. Chris Banovich, owner of North Tahoe Catering, has generously donated light refreshments for this special occasion.

Our deepest appreciation to the Town of Truckee, Arts For the Schools and the artists for their commitment to foster public art for the enjoyment and enrichment of our community with the new “Student Art in Public Places” program. Please call 582-8278 for info.
