Tahoe-Truckee Lib Loop: Not just books, but painting too

INCLINE VILLAGE, Nev. — Stop by the Incline Village library this week and watch local artist Sara L. Smith as she redesigns the building’s existing mural.

Sara plans to consider the new use of the space in question, the former coffee bar area, changing the imagery to better reflect the evolution of the space into a makerspace and creative activity area.

She will be working in the studio as an artist-in-residence from 2-4 p.m., Oct. 20-24. Interaction and questions are welcome, or just come by to watch the process, and hopefully get inspired to jump into your own creative pursuit.
