Savor and Sip While Supporting Art for the Schools



TDMA presents the second annual Art & Soul of Truckee to benefit Arts for the Schools. 

Art and Soul

Art & Soul combines visual art, live music, artist demonstrations, craft beer tastings, small bites and more in Historic Downtown Truckee. On Saturday, Sept. 17, 2016 from 1 p.m. – 6 p.m., the Truckee Downtown Merchants Association (TDMA) presents the second annual Art & Soul Downtown Truckee ArtWalk.

Stroll through Art & Soul’s 30 stops celebrating Truckee’s artist community and have fun while giving back, because a percentage of the proceeds will go to Arts for the Schools.

“We love supporting Truckee and Reno’s art culture and revival with locals and visitors alike,” said Cassie Hebel, executive director for the TDMA. “Arts for the Schools was a great choice for us because they, like us, believe access and exposure to the arts is essential for all.” 

Art & Soul will take over downtown Truckee’s sidewalks and the new plazas with sculptures, live music and artist demonstrations. Ticket holders will enjoy interactive artist demonstrations, craft beer and wine tastings, and small bites of local fare. Many locations will also be providing shopping and drink discounts.

“Last year’s event was a success in many ways; the community, locals and visitors alike loved celebrating Truckee’s art culture,” said Hebel. “We are celebrating our entire local artisan community including Truckee’s amazing photographers, oil painters, jewelry designers, musicians and culinary artists.”

Tickets for Art & Soul are $35 in advance and $42 at the door. Group tickets are also available with 4 tickets for $120. Advance tickets can be purchased at www.historictruckee.com or locally at Cooking Gallery. A portion of the event’s proceeds goes to Arts for the Schools.
