The Tuesday, June 9, Good Morning Truckee meeting will put the spotlight on the town's growing arts scene.

According to the Truckee Donner Chamber of Commerce, more and more visitors and locals are enjoying Truckee's thriving arts community with multiple art galleries in the historic downtown, new events, artists lofts being planned, and more.

"Some may be surprised to learn that Truckee is home to over 200 independent professional artists," according to a news release. "Organizations and individuals committed to the arts are moving mountains to create a community and environment to embrace and nurture the talent drawn to our region."

Attendees will hear from Rick Holliday, of Holliday Development, who will provide an update on the Railyard Project and the importance of the inclusion of artists lofts in the plan.

The meeting will also cover the launch of TOAST (Truckee Open Art Studios Tour), which takes a page out of Reno Artown's book.

Event Organizer Carla Beebe will hit the highlights of this new 10-day festival of diverse arts that includes film, art exhibits, and music all anchored by open studio tours on two weekends.
